The Philosophy of "The Good Place"

Tuesday, October 23, 2018

Dr. Robin James recently published "The Other Secret Twist: On the Political Philosophy of The Good Place" in the Los Angeles Review of Books. She argues that the NBC sitcom The Good Place, although it appears to stay at the level of Ethics 101, actually "shows us a fairly well-developed political philosophy . . . . one that is largely more progressive than both its metanarrative about ethics and the politics of mainstream academic philosophy."
