Abstracts are sought for a collection of philosophical essays on J. D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye, to be edited by Keith Dromm and Heather Salter. The volume will be published by Open Court as part of their successful Popular Culture and Philosophy Series. Previous volumes in the series include Seinfeld and Philosophy, The Matrix and Philosophy, Hitchcock and Philosophy, The Golden Compass and Philosophy, and many others.
Abstracts should be for essays that use philosophy to illuminate the novel's characters, story, or themes. The volume is geared toward a general audience, readers who may have little to no prior familiarity with philosophy. The chapters should be accessible, clearly written, and capable of engaging non-philosophers.
