What lessons can Harry Potter teach us about social justice? What better way to understand Plato's moral philosophy than by discussing Groundhog Day? What can Mr. Robot, Orphan Black, and the Walking Dead teach us about political philosophy? What is personal identity? Certainly, Dr. Who and the Legend of Zelda can help sort this out. Why do we like being scared? The answer lies in an analysis of American Horror Story. Movies such as The Matrix and Inception are ideal for exploring the nature of human knowledge. Why should one never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line? The list of interesting philosophical themes in pop culture is virtually endless. In this panel we (Professors Rachel Robison-Greene and Richard Greene) will present important philosophical ideas as found in pop culture. We will not only explicate philosophical ideas as they arise in our favorite television shows, books, and movies, but also explore, with the help of the audience, how pop culture answers important philosophical questions. The well-crafted thought experiment has been the philosopher's chief tool since Plato first left his cave. Nowhere are more compelling thought experiments found than in contemporary pop culture.
