Description - South Park and Philosophy by Robert Arp

If you think Saddam and Satan make a kinky couple, wait till you get a load of South Park and Philosophy. Get your Big Wheels ready, because we're going for a ride, as 22 philosophers take us down the road to understanding the big-picture issues in this small mountain town. * A smart and candid look at one of television's most subversive and controversial shows, celebrating its 10th anniversary this year * Draws close parallels between the irreverent nature of South Park and the inquiring and skeptical approach of philosophy * Addresses the perennial questions of the show, and the contemporary social and political issues that inspire each episode * Uses familiar characters and episodes to illustrate topics such as moral relativism, freedom of expression, gay marriage, blasphemy, democracy, feminism, animal ethics, existential questions and much more * makes you laugh out loud
