How is Jerry like Socrates? Is Elaine a feminist? What would Aristotle have thought of George? Is Kramer stuck in Kierkegaard's aesthetic stage of life?

Seinfeld was the most popular sitcom of the 1990s--and the most philosophical sitcom of all time. Both praised and damned as a "show about nothing," Seinfeld does indeed have something to tell us about the metaphysics of Nothingness. It also sheds light on other philosophical topics, notably what it takes to live "the moral life."

In Seinfeld and Philosophy, thirteen Seinfeld fans who happen to be professional philosophers examine the ideas, the stories, the jokes, and the characters of Seinfeld. This is a quick, entertaining view of philosophy, whether as a first taste, a refresher course, or a regular stop on one's "eternal return." It's also a treat for the real Seinfeld aficionado, even one with no prior interest in philosophy--not that there's anything wrong with that.
