24 and Philosophy: The World According to Jack


Don’t be scared by the title, this book isn’t a heavy philosophical tome, but is a witty look at some of the methods and motivations of the characters in 24 and in particular gives a insight into the behaviour and character of Jack Bauer.

Written by 20 philosophers who are also big fans of the 24 series, this book is a fun read that is also an exploration of the ethical issues within the series. Addressing issues such as torture, terrorism and warfare this book raises some interesting (but not too deep or intimidating!) questions about loyalty, suspicion and knowledge.

I’d recommend this book for any Jack fan who has ever questioned what makes Jack tick. What makes him make the decisions he makes..? Think about this and more with this book.
