A fascinating exploration of the philosophy behind NBCs hit TV series 30 Rock.

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? Kenneth redefines Goody Two-shoes, but what does it really mean to be good? 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, Tina Fey and her fellow cast members are thrust onto the philosophical stage with Plato, Aristotle, Kant, and other great thinkers to examine these key questions and many others that involve the characters and plotlines of 30 Rock and its fictional TGS with Tracy Jordan comedy show. This book:

  • Takes an entertaining, up-close look at the philosophical issues behind 30 Rock's characters and storylines, from post-feminist ideals to workaholism and the meaning of life
  • Equips you with a new understanding of Liz Lemon, Jack Donaghy, Tracy Jordan, Jenna Maroney, Dr. Spaceman, and other characters
  • Gives you deep and meaningful new reasons (who knew?) for watching Tina Fey and your other favorites on 30 Rock

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

    " Some of the essays were a bit dumbed down and some were a little too esoteric, but overall this was a fun collection. "

    " Sometimes insightful and thought-provoking; other times, either 30 Rock gets in the way of philosophy, or philosophy gets in the way of 30 Rock. "
