Book Review: The Good Place and Philosophy

I have a new book review up at the Englewood Review of Books. This time, I reviewed The Good Place and Philosophy, edited by Steven Banko and Andrew Pavelich. An excerpt:

As books that analyze the philosophical themes of popular culture go, there probably was no book that was more inevitable to be written than The Good Place and Philosophy. At the beginning of the show, we meet Eleanor Shellstrop, who is given the news within the first few minutes that she has died and is now in the afterlife. Better yet, she is told that she has entered the Good Place, the show’s term for heaven, where all the most moral people who have ever lived arrive to enjoy eternity.
