"This book is a witty exploration of the methods and motivations used by characters in the highly charged television drama and how some questions can be answered in our own lives." (Colleges.com)
From the Back Cover
The Los Angeles Counter-Terrorism Unit (CTU) is on high alert now that 24 and Philosophy has been released to the public. Better hold your breath as such dangerous philosophers as Aristotle, Hobbes, Kant and Nietzsche infiltrate the CTU. Join them as they investigate Jack Bauer, asking the big questions of philosophy.
Along the way, we’ll want to know why the American Presidents trust Jack Bauer and whether they ought to? What does he have to know to cut through lies and ambiguities? When he saves lives by risking lives, is he justified or just lucky? When he puts his life on the line, is he crazy or courageous? And how could he know which knee cap to blow out to get that all-important next lead?? With the help of this volume, you don’t need a security clearance to learn about philosophy.See all Product Description
