""This work is a significant contribution to pop culture scholarship that draws attention to the mind behind some of the most provocative television and movie plots of our day." -- Sharon Kaye, author of Philosophy, A Complete Introduction" -- ""This well designed book opens up the works of J.J. Abrams like a Lamborghini on beautiful boundless freeway. With essays ranging from the metaphysics of time and self, to emerging issues in ethics as technology advances, this book is great for any class in Introductory Philosophy. Students will encounter essays that focus on everything from existential dread in the vast infinity of Star Trek space (Piven & Stephenson) to the nature of love in Super 8 (Auxier). Abrams forces us to shift our understanding out of automatic when we view his many creative works; he drives us in many philosophical directions. This book is a V6 thrill-ride that makes thinking in high gear fun."-- Sara Waller, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Montana State University" --
