pdf ì True Detective and Philosophy Ä Jacob Graham

Investigating the trail of philosophical leads in HBO’s chilling True Detective series an elite team of philosophers examine far reaching riddles including human pessimism Rust’s anti natalism the problem of evil and the ‘flat circle’ The first book dedicated to exploring the far reaching philosoph “It's not the threat of being taken by the Green Man to be sacrificed to the Yellow King that should scare us when we watch and imagine the world of True Detective What's truly scary is living in a world where such things exist and in which our very sense of self is permeated with that darkness”This book serves as an excellent companion piece for those obsessed by the first season of TRUE DETECTIVE enough to watch all the extras on the DVDs and conduct internet searches to learn about the key characters and what makes them tick and self destruct Rust’s dialogue borrows heavily from Ligotti’s THE CONSPIRACY AGAINST THE HUMAN RACE and other sources This book dissects the words and actions of both Rust and Marty to analyze their character arcs actions and states of mind While the book includes some analysis of the characters and story lines of season two the main focus is on season one and primarily Rust’s character The subject matter also delves into noir cosmic horror mythology and what it means to be a true detective There’s a fair amount of repetition in that many of the same snippets of dialogue are examined again and again by different essayists I really enjoyed this deep dive into the series but anyone who isn’t a hard core fan may find the book a slog and the repetition annoying But the different perspectives may be an Easter egg for those who are haunted by the characters and events of season 1 For example dissection of Rust’s character into Taxman Belligerent and Patient as is done in one essay helps shed light on his story arc I highlighted the heck out of this book finding nuggets galore that fascinated me I love the whole idea of this series that examines popular culture through the lens of philosophy as well as the one that does the same with psychology
