24 and Philosophy

The new book, 24 and Philosophy: The World According to Jack, now available from Amazon and other booksellers, includes an essay from Metaphilm publisher Read Mercer Schuchardt, who argues that “The television program known as 24 is a documentary of the cell phone’s complete takeover of contemporary life. All else is commentary.”

The book is part of the Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture Series, and Blackwell has allowed us to post Schuchardt’s chapter so that our readers can get a taste for the book. You can download a PDF excerpt with his essay here: “How the Cell Phone Changed the World and Made 24”.
