Although I am mentioning this book in the context of Halloween, it might also be a holiday gift idea for the philosophically inclined teen on your list. The Undead and Philosophy: Chicken Soup for the Soulless edited by Richard Greene and K. Silem Mohammad considers a range of philosophical questions that arise from zombies, vampires, and the undead: "Is a zombie simply someone with a brain but without a mind? Are some of the people around us undead, and how could we tell? Can the undead be held responsible for what they do? Is it always morally OK to kill the undead? Served up in a witty, entertaining style, these and other provocative questions present philosophical arguments in terms accessible to all readers." smile.amazon.com/Undead-Philosophy-Chicken-Soup-Soulless/dp/B00D5KZSAE
