More Description

"Family Guy and Philosophy" brings together low-brow, potty-mouthed, cartoon humor and high-brow philosophical reflection to deliver an outrageously hilarious and clever exploration of one of TV's most unrelenting families. Ok, it's not that high-brow.
A sharp, witty and absurd exploration of one of television's most unrelenting families, the stars of one of the biggest-selling TV series ever on DVD, now in its fourth season
Tackles the perennial positions of "Family Guy" at the same time as contemplating poignant philosophical issues
Takes an introspective look at what this show can teach us about ethics, ego, religion, death, and of course, time-travel
Considers whether "Family Guy" is really a vehicle for conservative politics, and whether we should be offended by the show, as well as diving into the philosophy of the cast
