The Inverted Spectrum Guidebook explores the philosophical bases behind the concepts introduced in the novel. These include the philosophy of Socrates, John Locke, Ralph Cudworth, Robert Boyle, G.W. Leibniz, Damaris Cudworth Masham, Thomas Aquinas, Immanuel Kant, John Stuart Mill, Mortimer J. Adler, Judith Butler, John Dewey, and Nick Bostrum, as well as the ideas, beliefs, and works of Joseph Henry and Isaac Newton.

This guidebook can be used by instructors, but it has been written to be accessible to students themselves so that they can delve deeper into the philosophical content that is the basis for the novel. It provides for each chapter a summary of the plot developments, a philosophical basis for the key concepts of the chapter, discussion questions, and suggestions for further exploration to extend the learning.
