Product Description

From the Back Cover

Should you let Oprah be your guide?

Is immoral behavior no laughing matter?

Can Devon Banks choose his sexual orientation?

Is that a dealbreaker?

Hello, dummy. Wait! Don′t stop reading. This is really important. I′m dying. Okay, that was a lie. It′s about this TV show I love. I recently discovered that I′m a 30 Rock addict. From Jack Donaghy′s management advice to the things Liz Lemon has to do just to get a show on the air every week, 30 Rock raises all kinds of ethical dilemmas and philosophical issues. Okay, it′s not like reading Wittgenstein, but it makes you wise. Like a genetically manipulated shark. Every essay in 30 Rock and Philosophy takes some of my favorite scenes from the show and uses them to explain important philosophical issues. Even the most esoteric ideas become understandable when Kenneth is involved. So if you watch the show for Tracy′s antics, Dr. Spaceman′s medical advice, or just to look at Tina Fey, read this book and you′ll walk away knowing about the Frankfurt School, Aristotle, and Jack Donaghy′s sordid love life. Now that we have that out of the way, I have an idea for a business that could make us both millionaires. One word: floppy disks.

I loved this book. It was extremely entertaining and very educational. I never realized how entertained I would be reading philisophical concepts via Liz Lemon.

It's as if a high-school teacher allowed a student to analyze a sitcom as a term papervsubject, only annoyingly self-satisfied and laboring under the delusion that it's as smart as the author thinks it is. Boooo.
