Aaron Allen Schiller, "Stephen Colbert and Philosophy: I Am Philosophy (And So Can You!) (Popular Culture and Philosophy)"
English | ISBN: 0812696611 | 2009 | PDF | 288 pages | 1 MB
At the head of The Colbert Report, one of the most popular shows on television, Stephen Colbert is a pop culture phenomenon. More than one million people backed his fake candidacy in the 2008 U.S. presidential election on Facebook, a testament to the particularly rich set of issues and emotions Colbert brings to mind.
Stephen Colbert and Philosophy is crammed with thoughtful and amusing chapters, each written by a philosopher and all focused on Colbert`s inimitable reality — from his word creations (truthiness, wikiality, freem, and others) to his position as a faux - pundit who openly mocks Fox News and CNN. Although most of the discussion is centered around The Colbert Report, this collection does not neglect either his best - selling book, I Am America (And So Can You!), or his public performances, including his incendiary 2006 White House Press Correspondents` Dinner speech.
