The Big Bang Theory and Philosophy: Rock, Paper, Scissors, Aristotle, Locke by Dean A. Kowalski, editor (John Wiley & Sons, 2012). The book is not a total loss: some interesting points, tidbits of knowledge, and some amusement are to be found. If you love the show, you can probably stand most of this book. Overall, this was a big whimper.
These seventeen essays come mostly from professors of philosophy. It is part of a “pop culture and philosophy” series that includes South Park and Philosophy, and The Big Lebowsky and Philosophy, among 28 titles, with more announced, including The Simpsons and Philosophy. The non-judgmental range of titles is internally consistent with the post-modernist presentation here.
None of the authors seems to appreciate why the show is so successful. As philosophers (a few social scientists), they generally sneer at knowledge and those who pursue it.
