Excerpt

The writing, editing, and other miscellaneous tasks involved in assembling Seinfeld and Philosophy: A Book about Everything and Nothing were a terrific and unparalleled experience. Each of the contributors was a consummate professional, working hard, paying diligent attention to details, and keeping a sense of humor throughout. The good folks at Open Court, David Ramsay Steele in particular, were a pleasure to work with, and are to be thanked and congratulated for having the fortitude, vision, and sense of humor to publish this volume.

In addition to the contributors and the publisher I wish to thank all those with whom I have discussed the connections between philosophy and Seinfeld. Many of these individuals took the time to read drafts of early versions of the essays in this book, offering valuable comments and criticisms which no doubt improved the final product. A list such as this is inevitably incomplete, but among those to whom I am indebted are: Gregory Bassham, Derrick Boucher, Alan Clune, Jason Goodman, Robert Guldner, Kathleen Irwin, Mary Ellen Irwin, William N. Irwin, Megan Lloyd, JR Lombardo, Jennifer O’Neill, Marc Marchese, Troy Marziotti, Henry Nardone, Joseph Schmidt, Kate Williams, all members of the original Buffalo Rectangle, and my colleagues and students at King’s College.
