Annotated Bibliography Asma, Stephen T. “Alexander Fights Monsters in India.” Monsters: A Bedford Spotlight Reader, edited by Andrew J. Hoffman, Boston: Bedford/St. Martin’s, 2016, pp. 156-62. In his article, Stephen T. Asma describes the experiences that Alexander the Great encountered in, what he believed to be, India. Alexander had to lead a group of soldiers into an unknown environment, where they encountered strange and new creatures. They were amazed and also terrified of these unusual and exotic monsters. Asma also describes the soldiers’ interpretations of these particular creatures and how they interacted to them. His credibility, as a Professor of Philosophy, will give an alternative insight as to how people, in unexplored environments with unknown creatures, could alter the human imagination into exaggerating ways. The way that Alexander the Great leads his soldiers, into this anonymous world, will be a vital example as to how one could lead others in a difficult or new environment that consists of monsters. Asma, Stephen T. “Monsters and the Moral Imagination.” Monsters: A Bedford Spotlight Reader, edited by Andrew J. Hoffman, Boston: Bedford/St. Martin’s, 2016, pp. 61-6. Stephan T. Asma does a reasonable comparison on why monsters are becoming more popular in the entertainment industry.

He is a credible author, who is a Professor of Philosophy. His article will be beneficial in discussing what humans need to do in order to survive in a chaotic environment, especially during a

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
