Are we right to admire members of a criminal organization?
Are the Sons of Anarchy really anarchists?
How does their relationship to their bikes help to shape the Sons' moral code?
Does membership in the MC tend to foster virtue or vice?
How do the club's practices and moral code make it like a religion?
FX's hit television series Sons of Anarchy draws viewers into the morally ambiguous world of a close-knit outlaw motorcycle club, where standard societal conventions and authority are shunned and replaced with a moral framework based on the bonds of brotherhood, family, and community and where members frequently war with other outlaw groups and the federal government to protect their interests and those of their home base, the town of Charming, California. Featuring essays by philosophical fans of the show and drawing on the ideas of some of history's greatest philosophers, including Plato, Aristotle, Machiavelli, Hobbes, Marx, and Nietzsche, Sons of Anarchy and Philosophy digs deep into the moral and political aspects of life in the MC - the ethics of loyalty, honor, and revenge, individual and group identity, the morality of war and terrorism, political authority, and religion.
Essential reading for fans of the show, this book takes readers deeper into the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club, the Teller-Morrow family, and the ethics that surround their lives and activities.

The second problem is some of the essays were redundant. Yes, it pulls from Hamlet. As Jax would say, "I get it." Yes, Gemma is manipulative and Tara slowly gets with the program. There is just so much you can say, and with that many independent authors they are going to step on each others toes.
The third problem goes with the territory. A selection of academics are examining a fictional narrative. Sutter certainly tells a great story, but it still is a story and not reality. Still some of the insights are interesting, such as a mannerbund of pre-Socratic warriors. Nietzsche thought the Greeks were at the end of the line when they got to the niceties of Platonic philosophy so some good old mayhem is refreshing.
Only real negative to the book is that they released it midway through the series (between seasons 5 and 6) rather than waiting until after the show's run was completed and all seasons could be included in the philosophical reflections.
