Michael Crichton - A Brilliant Philosopher

Here's a comment I posted on the New York Times website:

Michael Crichton was far more than a novelist. He was a brilliant philosopher who explored ideas and issues through fiction. On a wide range of important topics, he ignited analysis and debate among readers around the world as few writers have ever done. Crichton’s strength was not in the answers he provided, but in the questions he provoked. His death is a tragic loss, but his books will continue to entertain and educate readers.

There is no doubt that he has been a great philosopher because I have been reading many of his books. They are pretty interesting and every story is totally different from the other one.
