The authors of this book wrote several essays
abut Seinfeld including the characters of Jerry,
George, Elaine and Kramer even Newman and other
cast members comparing them and their lives to
the lives and ethics of famous philosophers as
well as looking into many episodes of Seinfeld
and the morals and dilemmas that Jerry, George,
Elaine and Kramer faced along with how they live
I like the fact that some famous philosophers
were featured in this book including Socrates,
Plato, Aristotle, and others.
The book also has a list of all Seinfeld episodes towards
the back as well as quotes by famous philosophers featured
in the book.
All in all a good read.
I give it 4/5 stars.
