Designed for philosophers as well as readers with no particular philosophical background, the essays in this lively book are grouped into four amusing acts. Act One looks at the four Seinfeld characters through a philosophical lens and includes Jerry and Socrates: The Examined Life? Act Two examines historical philosophers from a Seinfeldian standpoint and offers Plato or Nietzsche? Time, Essence, and Eternal Recurrence in Seinfeld. Act Three, Untimely Meditations by the Water Cooler, explores philosophical issues raised by the show, such as, Is it rational for George to do the opposite? And Act Four, Is There Anything Wrong with That?, discusses ethical problems of everyday life using Seinfeld as a basis. Seinfeld and Philosophy also provides a guide to Seinfeld episodes and a chronological list of the philosophers cited in this book.

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.

A Great book on Seinfeld and Philosophy!

The authors of this book wrote several essays
abut Seinfeld including the characters of Jerry,
George, Elaine and Kramer even Newman and other
cast members comparing them and their lives to
the lives and ethics of famous philosophers as
well as looking into many episodes of Seinfeld
and the morals and dilemmas that Jerry, George,
Elaine and Kramer faced along with how they live
their lives.

I like the fact that some famous philosophers
were featured in this book including Socrates,
Plato, Aristotle, and others.

The book also has a list of all Seinfeld episodes towards
the back as well as quotes by famous philosophers featured
in the book.

All in all a good read.

I give it 4/5 stars.

The authors may not appreciate my letting you in on the secret taht this book is quite a bit more scholarly than I gave it credit for being, before actually reading it. I was expecting something flimsy and silly and hollow, and am quite impressed to find a strong, well-written, eloquent, arguably even *important* collection of intellectual writings.
If you've didn't watch much Seinfeld (that is, never saw it, or didnt see enough of it to know at least a few inside jokes), then you may have trouble appreciating what's here. But as an academic, who's probably seen every episode of the show at least once (given nearly a decade of reruns), I found it refreshing and alive.

This book attests to the profundity of Seinfeld, how it is an appropriate vehicle for teaching a philosphical analysis explaining why the Seinfeld characters never grow up, find meaning, and discover wisdom, all the while holding a mirror to our own society and being loveable and endearing at the same time. You learn about Aristotle's Ethics and Virture and why George, lacking these things, can never achieve happiness. This essay about George's incurable unhappiness is the best of the bunch and worth the price of the whole book. In this anthology, I came across about six solid essays that highlighted Seinfeld's best attributes through the use of philosophy.

Even if you're not yet a "Seinfeld" fanatic or don't know much about specific concepts of philosophy, this anthology does a great job of introducing you to both and integrating them well. The academic concepts are seriously explored, the connections made to the TV series are relevant, and it's all very enlightening reading without being simplistic. You can learn a lot from this relatively short anthology of explorations about much more than "nothing."
It's real simple: if you're a fan of the show and are even moderately interested in philosophy, you'll like Seinfeld and Philosophy. This is a more enjoyable Philosophy 101 class. My only complaint is that they make a few factual errors-Mickey is not a Communist, for example. Notwithstanding this, I highly recommend the book. My favorite chapter was the one dissecting the "Opposite" episode. Don't listen to the negative reviews; get this book.
