Muppet Philosophy

We’re taking a break from Star Wars this week to link to a very different venerable popular culture franchise (also owned by Disney!), the Muppets.

Similar to an entry from the popular-culture-philosophy series by Blackwell and Open Court (but not apparently affiliated with either), Timothy Dale and Joseph Foy’s Jim Henson and Philosophy: Imagination and the Magic of Mayhem takes an academically serious, but general-audience friendly look at the philosophy and philosophical implications of a pop-culture figure, in this case, Muppets creator Jim Henson.
