Review: I just finished Seinfeld and Philosophy, which I bought because I'm a big fan of the show and interested in philosophy (though I am by no means well versed in the topic). I have to say I found the book rather inconsistent. Some of the essays were highly enjoyable and informative (the one about Kramer and Kierkegaard and the one titled Is doing nothing something? spring to mind) but mostly I got the impression that the authors were either not really passionate about the show or just not very adept at applying their vast knowledge to such an unconventional topic. There is a lot of repetition as all examples stem from a disappointingly small number of episodes (this being a show that ran from 9 seasons and offered 180 episodes, almost all of which contributed to popular culture and the show's mythology in one form or another). While it was definitely a fun read, it wasn't something I really couldn't have lived without (especially for a price of 9.99$) and not as entertaining and informative as The X-Files and Philosophy.
