Comments Dexter and Philosophy: Mind over Spatter

  1. Can you really write an entire book of pop philosophy about Dexter Apparently, so A bit dry and boring, unless you daydream of Dexter The discussions were repetitive there are only so many times I can stand the deontological consequentialist debate in one book The essays worth reading were chapters 17, 18, 21, and 23 discussions of sexuality, race, virtue, and freedom in Dexter I found the discussions of Foucault, Aristotle, and Sartre to be intriguing Foucault as ever needs only a explanation o [...]


  2. In general, I liked it It should definitely not be read if you have not already seen Seasons 1 5 as it will spoil a great many things and it doesn t warn you either Thankfully, I m very current on my Dexter Some of the essays felt like I was reading the same thing but by a different person and I can practically quote verbatim some of the lines that came up again and again There was an interesting one about the invisibility of whiteness, a commentary on the lack of support the female characters g [...]


  3. This is of a collector s item than a good read I feel like someone is explaining the most obvious things to me Not that interesting but 20 years from now maybe it ll be worth my time.


  4. Library Journal Review If I identify with a serial killer, what does that say about me Every fan of Dexter has pondered this rather complex philosophical question In this latest volume in the Popular Culture and Philosophy series, a broad collection of philosophers analyze the morality and ethics of Dexter Morgan Whereas other subjects in this series require some mental dexterity to connect the two themes The Red Sox and Philosophy, for example , the popular Showtime program is ripe for philosop [...]


  5. Somewhat interesting collection of philosophical essays addressing our fascination and love for this television series featuring a serial killer, Dexter Morgan, as the central figure Why do we like Dexter Why do we want him to not get caught How does he draw us in to see all of who Dexter is and understand, perhaps condone, his addiction to killing Of course Harry s code adds an element of reason we can live with and sometimes cheer him on.A few of the entries were well done and thought provokin [...]


  6. Is Dexter an angel of justice, a tortured victim of a trauma from childhood, an amoral psychopath or a tragic superhero This is one of the many questions philosophers around the country cover in this book This is a great book for fans of the show and should only be read if you have seen the first four seasons of Dexter In the end this is another solid book in the Pop Culture and Philosophy book series.


  7. I am a big fan of this series of books and a big fan of Dexter, so it s hard not to like a book The only slightly down side to this one is that pretty much all philosophical discussions surrounding Dexter are ethical ones, and this isn t the case with most books in the series The most interesting essays for me, were the last few that dealt with the issue of why we cheer for Dexter, and is it okay to do so.


  8. A book of multiple essays about America s favorite TV killer Essays delve into the philosophical and psychological aspect of the show and some of the essays will blow your mind and make your head spin.
