    Shakespeare and the Good Life: Ethics and Politics in Dramatic Form.Paul A. Cantor - 1999 - Review of Metaphysics 52 (3):701-703.
    David Lowenthal offers a serious treatment of the idea that Shakespeare was a serious thinker, indeed a philosopher who chose to develop his ideas in dramatic form. Readers accustomed to contemporary Shakespeare criticism may be puzzled by Lowenthal’s book. He makes no effort to historicize his discussion of Shakespeare and never invokes the unholy trinity of race, class, and gender in analyzing the plays. Compared to new historicist, feminist, Marxist, and deconstructionist critics of Shakespeare, Lowenthal may seem to be a (...)

    The Fall of the House of Ulmer.Paul A. Cantor - 2010 - In Thomas Richard Fahy (ed.), The Philosophy of Horror. University Press of Kentucky. pp. 137.
    Chapter Seven discusses Edgar Ulmer's The Black Cat as the creation of a high modernist European émigré working in a lowbrow American genre, the horror movie. Ulmer portrays a self-destructive generation of Europeans permanently scarred by the horrors of World War I. Into their world, he introduces a young American couple on their honeymoon, who, in their naïveté, are almost destroyed by the mad Europeans, but escape their satanic clutches in the end. Hoping to succeed in his newly adopted homeland, (...)

    Cartman Shrugged.Paul A. Cantor - 2013 - In Robert Arp & Kevin S. Decker (eds.), The Ultimate South Park and Philosophy: Respect My Philosophah! Wiley-Blackwell. pp. 175--193.
    Chapter Six defends one of the most offensive shows in television history—South Park—against its many critics. It argues that the vulgarity, obscenity, and blasphemy of the show have deep roots in a tradition of philosophical comedy that stretches back to such figures as Aristophanes, Rabelais, and Mark Twain. Comedy is by nature transgressive, and South Park derives its bite and its energy from the way it violates contemporary norms of political correctness. The chapter focuses on episodes of South Park that (...)

Shep Melnick, Jessica Korn & Robert P. Kraynak - 2000 - Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.

Their essays offer penetrating analyses of Machiavellianism, liberalism, and America., all of them informed by MansfieldOs own work. The volume also includes a bibliography of (...)
