About this item
At the head of "The Colbert Report, " one of the most popular shows on television, Stephen Colbert is a pop culture phenomenon. More than one million people backed his fake candidacy in the 2008 U.S. presidential election on Facebook, a testament to the particularly rich set of issues and emotions Colbert brings to mind. "Stephen Colbert and Philosophy" is crammed with thoughtful and amusing chapters, each written by a philosopher and all focused on Colbert's inimitable reality -- from his word creations (truthiness, wikiality, freem, and others) to his position as a faux-pundit who openly mocks Fox News and CNN. Although most of the discussion is centered around "The Colbert Report, " this collection does not neglect either his best-selling book, "I Am America (And So Can You!), " or his public performances, including his incendiary 2006 White House Press Correspondents' Dinner speech.
