Philosophy and Popular Culture – a Need for Justification
The study of philosophy and popular culture is complex and difficult. It requires a philosophical discipline and a commitment to the belief that popular culture has philosophical content. The content might be fleeting or extensive philosophical dialogue, scenes, or images. It might even be examples of situations that disserve philosophical investigation that have no philosophical intention. Matching the two and justifying philosophical relevance to popular culture is not easy.
