>Now Available for Pre-Order: Dexter and Philosophy (2011)


I’m proud to announce I have an essay entitled “The Killing Joke” featured in Open Court’s upcoming Dexter and Philosophy book, due for publication on June 1st.  
This book on Dexter is the latest in the “Popular Culture and Philosophy” series, and is now available for pre-order at Amazon.com, here
This is actually my second occasion working with Open Court since I also had two essays featured in 2008’s Battlestar Galactica and Philosophy
There, I had the pleasure of writing about both the original BSG and the recent remake, particularly their opposing moral approaches to storytelling.  I conducted an interview with the editors of that volume for the blog, here.
In my opinion, Dexter is one of the best TV series on the air right now (if not the best), so it was a great pleasure and a lot of fun to be involved with this new book.  
So if you like Dexter (and you like philosophy too, I guess…), go ahead and check this one out, you won’t be disappointed.
