From ""Raising Arizona"" to the academy-award-winning ""No Country for Old Men"", the films of the Coen brothers have made an unmistakable imprint on Hollywood. ""The Philosophy of the Coen Brothers"" explores concepts such as justice, the problem of interpretation, existential role-playing, the philosophy of comedy, and the coldness of modernity. This volume is not just for die-hard Lebowski Fest attendees, but for anyone who enjoys big ideas on the big screen.

MEDIA REVIEWS

""This volume is written for both fans of the Coen brothers and the philosophically curious, without the technical language. Both educational and entertaining, this philosophical compilation is recommended for public and academic libraries, particularly those with degree programs in philosophy and film."--Joshua Finnell, Library Journal" --


""The Philosophy of the Coen Brothers offers a very smart, provocative, and stylishly written set of essays on the films of the Coen brothers. The volume makes a convincing case for reading their films within a wide array of philosophic contexts and persuasively demonstrates that the films of the Coen brothers often implicitly and sometimes explicitly engage with central issues in the history of western philosophy from Plato and Aristotle to Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Sartre, Baudrillard, and MacIntyre." Michael Valdez Moses, author of "The Novel and the Globalization of Culture"" --
