Trey Parker and Matt Stone's long-running Comedy Central hit cartoon South Park has been equally cheered and reviled for its edgy humor, poited satire of current events and celebrities, and all-around obnoxiousness.

I Kill Kenny, Therefore I Am

I love all the books in the Pop Culture and Philosophy series, and the "South Park" installment was no disappointment! Making the subject of philosophy applicable to those of us who were raised by an electronic box, the book is a spectacularly intellectual look at one of the most provocative shows in TV history!

A pick for high school contemporary philosophy collections

SOUTH PARK AND PHILOSOPHY: BIGGER, LONGER, AND MORE PENETRATING pairs the long-running and controversial Comedy Central cartoon hit with ideas gained from philosophy, applying a classical philosophical analysis to a show which offends many and which would seem to defy classical interpretation. In drawing connections between the popular show and classic philosophy, readers gain not only a better understanding of the show's controversies and approaches, but will find the entire approach and contentions of philosophy more appealing as it links well to contemporary experience. A pick for high school contemporary philosophy collections as well as for general-interest and college-level fans of South Park.
