Popular Culture and Philosophy

A blog for contributors and editors by Series Editor, George A. Reisch

DALEKMANIA in the U.K., Redux

Posted on | March 20, 2012

Move over Sarah Palin.  British philosopher Robin Bunce, writing in Doctor Who and Philosophy, has found a new source of abject evil and abhorrence in the universe:  The Daleks. Bunce’s theory that the Daleks’ evil strikes us a little too close to home is being discussed from high table to low tabloids and everywhere in between. Here, here, over here, and over here. Other contributors are getting press attention as well, leading to speculation that the Daleks have set their sites on taking over facebook, starting with editor Court Lewis’s page. Philosophy Now, (we’ve been waiting….) has reviewed the book, too.
