Is Veronica Mars a feminist icon?
Why does Veronica find it so hard to trust anyone?
Is Veronica morally justified in breaking the law in her quest for justice?
Is the portrayal of racial conflict in Veronica Mars a realistic depiction of contemporary society?
Is knowing the truth always such a good thing? Veronica Mars and Philosophy features a thought-provoking introduction to philosophical issues developed in Veronica Mars, the critically acclaimed neo-noir detective series set in the fictional town of Neptune, California. Though it ran from 2004 to 2007, the dramatic hit show has achieved a cult-like status and has even inspired a new feature film. Couched in the popular show's intricate plotting, witty dialog, and highly intelligent scripts, this book explores issues relating to trust, friendship, revenge, knowledge, skepticism, race, class, gender, and feminism. The authors reveal the complex moral make-up of Veronica, the smartly sarcastic high school teen and amateur investigator, as she solves mysteries and deals with life-changing events. Veronica Mars and Philosophy offers fans and newcomers alike insights into the philosophical issues related to crime solving and to some of the larger mysteries of life, illustrated by our street-wise, smart, and fascinating hero.

HASH(0x91f47c18) von 5 Sternen Over-reliance on reference sinks serious discourse 29. Januar 2015
Von Suyo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The famous Veronica Mars line "the people you love let you down" applies aptly to this collection of unremarkable essays. In evoking it, however, I fall into the trap which afflicts the majority of the pieces. Though I consider the Pop Culture and Philosophy series to be wildly inconsistent in terms of quality, this volume falls decidedly on the lower quality spectrum. With the exception of the fantastic Rejena Saulsberry, Daniel A. Wilkenfeld, and James B. South pieces, the essays seem to be a desperate display by PhD candidates to flex their level of Veronica Mars fandom. Incongruous quotes are plentiful and penetrating insights are few and far between. This series of critical inquiries into pop culture is at its best when it is posing questions few viewers thought to ask. For the most part, this series safely reiterates commonly articulated observations about the show with a vague glaze of philosophical language. It is worth noting that this volume could be considered an unofficial sequel to the Rob Thomas edited Neptune Noir which — atrocious first essay aside — is a far more thought provoking collection of essays on Veronica Mars complete with Thomas's own insights.

When the volume gets it right, however, it does truly sing. Saulsberry's analysis of race in Veronica Mars is extremely productive, especially when locating seemingly deracialized characters in television for predominantly white audiences. The ease with which Saulsberry's analysis of Veronica Mars can be applied to other disparate series makes it a profoundly rewarding read. Wilkenfeld ventures into the contours of formal logic that Veronica uses in her investigations in a way which pushes the envelop in regards to the consideration of formal logic. South's piece is by and large the most comprehensive and productive close reading of Veronica's character trajectory and identity. The essays by Catlyn Origitano, Jon Robson, and Jordan Pascoe (Pascoe's seeming half-hearted and incomplete indictment of slut-shaming aside) In opposition to the few successes these essays secure for the collection, some of the omissions are Lamb-style bumbles. The essay on Veronica as a feminist icon co-authored by Kasey Butcher and Megan Peters really falls short of interrogating the series's gender politics. Though Butcher and Peters provide a treasure trove of information on feminist scholarship and map those ideas onto Veronica in an extremely compelling fashion, their poor analysis of Lilith House leaves a great deal to be desire. They address the elephant in the room of Lilith House only in the most tangential sense, and ultimately fail to reconcile their reading of Veronica Mars as a feminist icon with Rob Thomas's utterly cowardly strawman criticisms of feminism which are manifest in Lilith House. The series gender politics in general are significantly more suspect as a consequence of Lilith House's presence in the series.

Though the anthology is really disappointing, for die hard Veronica Mars fans it is worth a read. For anyone else, steer clear.
