A group of philosophers examines "The Simpsons"--beyond the jokes, the crudeness, and the attacks on society--as a clever display of irony, social criticism, and philosophical thought. They begin with an examination of the Simpson family, examine the ethics and themes of the show, and conclude with discussions of how the series reflects the work of Aristotle, Marx, Sartre, and other thinkers.
