Seinfeld and Philosophy : A Book about Everything and Nothing

Description

This entertaining but thought provoking collection uses "Seinfeld" episodes to introduce readers to important concepts in philosophy. Some essays are devoted to single characters, asking questions such as "Did Jerry, like Socrates, lead an examined life?" Others explore philosophical issues raised by the show, debating whether it was rational for George to "do the opposite". The authors also examine the ethical problems of everyday life, drawing upon the many examples found in the show. The volume includes a guide to "Seinfeld" episodes and a chronological guide to important philosophers.
