So much more than a great book about Doctor Who 19 Feb. 2014
By Terry Macmullan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an outstanding work of scholarship that was literally thirty years in the making. No one has done more to demonstrate the legitimacy and importance of philosophizing about pop culture than Kevin Decker, and Doctor Who has been his dearest cultural love since he first watched the show as a kid in the '80s. This book will not only reward fans of the show, be they die-hard originalists or Matt Smith devotees, but will demonstrate why philosophers have for centuries explained and illuminated philosophy's significance by referencing fictional stories and figures. Decker's work lifts philosophy out of its dusty armchair and sets it moving again. Decker shows us how philosophy, like a certain Doctor, can drop into our lives -- unannounced, wondrous and strange-- and bid us follow it as it performs its work anew.

Disappointing 14 April 2014
By Traveler Kx - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is disappointing. Reading the opening introduction, the back blurb and the title I was drawn that the book would explain The Doctor by HIS philosophy (even if respective incarnations contradicted each other.) What we got was needlessly dense, poorly explained philosophical concepts that drone on for five or six pages of skull numbing tedium before sprinkling in a Doctor Who quote that doesn't actually fit the concepts explained.

Don't waste your money on this book.
