Philosophy and pop culture continue to make happy bedfellows in Planet of the Apes and Philosophy, the newest in a series of such books looking at the ideas of great philosophers through the lens of television, film, music, and other elements of pop culture. This volume, edited by John Huss’87, features nearly two dozen essays, including one by Beloit’s Keefer Professor Tom McBride. Huss teaches philosophy at the University of Akron and is a research associate for genetic research ethics and law at Case Western Reserve University. Huss also co-edited Johnny Cash and Philosophy: The Burning Ring of Truth, published in 2008.
