What is Jeopardy! and Philosophy?

Posted on | July 21, 2011

“This volume, forthcoming in Open Court’s Popular Culture and Philosophy series, will be edited by a philosopher who, unless he or she uses TIVO, never schedules class or office hours between 3:30 and 4:00 pm, central standard time.”

If you are a Jeopardy! fan who recognizes the potential this book could have for discussing many analytic themes—category theory, epistemology, implicit definitions, description theory, artificial intelligence, probability, intelligence measurement, to name a few—to an avid, dedicated, and brainy audience, let me know of your interest and qualifications.  Open Court or I will be in touch with prospective editors shortly.
