9780742551756: Philosophy and the Interpretation of Pop Culture
Críticas:

Whether we call it popular culture or mass art, there's plenty of people who think it's like junk food - bad for you. This collection by top scholars makes a strong case that there's not just some nourishment mixed in there, but even some entries worth savoring. Popular culture can educate, arouse emotions, ponder philosophy, and make esoteric allusions that reward aesthetic attention. -- Cynthia A. Freeland, Professor and Chair, Department of Philosophy, University of Houston The variety of approaches and depth of insight in this diverse set of essays makes this volume required reading for all those interested in taking philosophy out of the ivory tower. -- Thomas Wartenberg, Professor and Chair of Philosophy, Mt. Holyoke College The analysis of popular culture is a booming industry. Blogs, VH1, The New York Times, heady academic conferences devoted to Buffy the Vampire Slayer: in contrast to a generation ago, it seems that everyone today is taking popular culture seriously. Some of the most insightful observations are coming from philosophers whose work can be found in this book, a rollicking collection of essays that demonstrates how useful philosophy can be in illuminating the products of mass culture. -- Robert Thompson, Trustee Professor, Media and Popular Culture and Director, Bleier Center for Television and Popular Culture, Syracuse University The collection is fun. This book will be interesting to aestheticians and people who have been watching the popular culture and philosophy trend closely. Metapsychology Online Reviews, March 2008 A welcome addition to the ever-growing pile of books on philosophy and popular culture. Journal Of Aesthetic Education, Summer 2008 For too long, philosophers have marginalized or even ignored mass culture. This engaging anthology, which is erudite and readable, sometimes provocative but often very funny, will decisively change the way that mass culture is understood. So go for it! -- David Carrier, Champney Family Professor, Case Western Reserve University/Cleveland Institute of Art, and Senior Fellow, National Center for th

Reseña del editor:

Aristotle analyzed the popular art of his time: the tragedies and epics. Why should philosophers today not do likewise? Perhaps we can learn something from children's stories by subverting the dominant paradigm of adult authority and admitting with Socrates that we don't know all the answers. Perhaps Batman has ethical lessons to teach that generalize beyond the pages of comic books. Is it better to like Mozart than it is to like Madonna? Kurt Cobain gave voice to the attitude of a generation, singing, 'Here we are, now entertain us.' Is entertainment a bad thing, or could it actually have value-and not just instrumental value?
