"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and Philosophy: Fear and Trembling in Sunnydale is an academic publication relating to the Buffyverse.

Despite creator Joss Whedon's professed atheism, Buffy often dealt with religious and philosophical symbolism. The book is made up of a collection of essays that link classical philosophy to the Buffy. The show's ability to explore the underlying evil in everyday life through supernatural metaphor makes possible to use such analysis.
