“In short, this is an excellent book: pleasant and easy to read while imparting essential philosophical Knowledge.” (Times Higher Education Supplement, 24 May 2012)
Clear, concise, yet comprehensive ethics textbook – informative and entertaining, with references to a wide variety of television comedies and dramas – a first–rate instrument for enlivening the philosophical classroom!
Jason T. Eberl, Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis
Philosophers often seek ways to "meet students where they live", to find familiar examples from daily experience that will give traditional theories new relevance. Jamie Carlin Watson and Robert Arp do this in a way that clearly communicates ethical theory and moral reasoning, in a book that is both rigorous and genuinely enjoyable to read.
Christine James, Valdosta State University
This thoughtful, entertaining introduction to ethical philosophy rescues philosophy from the arid realm of academia and smartly incorporates it into the accessible land of television and everyday life.
Dan Dinello, Columba College Chicago
Linking classic and contemporary ethical theories to the likes of Star Trek and South Park, this unique book gets the pedagogical use of pop culture just right. What a fun and exciting way to teach and learn ethics!
