Mister Rogers and Philosophy: Wondering Through the Neighborhood joins others in the Popular Culture and Philosophy series that joins television and film experience to philosophical contentions, and is recommended reading for media studies and philosophy students alike. It closely inspects the tenets and presentation of Mister Rogers Neighborhood, exploring his character and ideals and linking his warm legacy to philosophy in a way that encourages TV viewers to think about the presence of philosophy in everyday life. From links between children's attractions to puppetry and changes in behavior from observations to Mister Rogers' lessons about love, this is an involving title that is revealing, lively, and directly connects philosophy to beloved cultural icons.
