CFP: The Man in the High Castle and Philosophy (Deadline: 1 September 2016)

The Man in the High Castle and Philosophy, edited by Bruce Krajewski and Joshua Heter, will be a book in Open Court Publishing Company’s Popular Culture and Philosophy series: http://www.opencourtbooks.com/categories/pcp.htm. It is scheduled for publication in Spring 2017.

The Saturn Award-nominated Amazon Production entitled “The Man in the High Castle” is based on the Philip K. Dick novel of the same name. The series explores a counter-factual history for a post-World War II USA, an answer to the question: What if the United States had lost WWII and been divided between Germany’s National Socialists and the Japanese? This takeover of the United States in connection to fascist power seems unfortunately relevant to the present, in which the United States, like parts of Europe, finds itself struggling with a rise in white supremacist groups, fears of colonization, and with capitalism in desperation, which is a working definition for fascism. As Amazon’s most-streamed original series, “The Man in the High Castle” has been booked for a second season, and is poised to become a cultural phenomenon.
