30 ROCK AND PHILOSOPHY: We Want to Go to There

With edgy writing and a great cast, 30 Rock is one of the funniest television shows on the air—and where hilarity ensues, philosophical questions abound: Are Liz Lemon and Jack Donaghy ethical heroes? Dr. Leo Spaceman routinely demonstrates that medicine is not a science, so what is the role of the incompetent professional in America today? 

In 30 ROCK AND PHILOSOPHY: We Want to Go to There (Wiley; August 2010; $17.95; Paper; By William Irwin), Tina Fey and her fellow cast members are thrust onto the philosophical stage with Plato, Aristotle, Kant, as key moral issues are brought up that involve the characters and plotlines of 30 Rock and its fictional TGS with Tracy Jordan comedy show. 30 ROCK AND PHILOSOPHY answers some pretty funny philosophical queries, such as: Should you let Oprah be your guide? Is immoral behavior no laughing matter?  Can Devon Banks choose his sexual orientation?  Is that a dealbreaker? 

Ideal for both casual and diehard fans, this book is the essential companion for every 30 Rock­-watcher.
