Do the philosophical implications of MTV really get you going?

If so, you are invited to submit an abstract for a collection of essays on
'MTV and Philosophy'. I seek to obtain the permission of Open Court Books in
publishing the result as part of their trendy Popular Culture and Philosophy
series. The series has spawned six successful volumes since its 2001 debut
with 'Seinfeld and Philosophy', including the best-selling 'The Matrix and
Philosophy', and is noted for revitalising philosophical narratives through
its celebration of pop culture as worthy of in-depth analysis.
