Enlightenment from the South Park gang faster than you can say, "Screw you guys, I'm going home"!

The Ultimate South Park and Philosophy: Respect My Philosophah! presents a compilation of serious philosophical reflections on the twisted insights voiced by characters in TV’s most irreverent animated series.

  • Offers readers a philosophically smart and candid approach to one of television’s most subversive and controversial shows as it enters its 17th season
  • Draws sharp parallels between the irreverent nature of South Park and the inquiring and skeptical approach of Western philosophy
  • Journeys deep beyond the surface of the show’s scatological humor to address the perennial questions raised in South Park and the contemporary social and political issues that inspire each episode
  • Utilizes familiar characters and episodes to illustrate such philosophical topics as moral relativism, freedom of expression, gay marriage, blasphemy, democracy, feminism, animal ethics, existential questions, and much more
  • It’s a Bigger, Longer & Uncut version of the highly acclaimed South Park and Philosophy: You Know, I Learned Something Today—and is guaranteed to be much funnier than killing Kenny
