Chuck_Klosterman_and_Philosophy_final_revise3by Seth Vannatta ’95

Since he burst on the world with his heavy-metal memoir “Fargo Rock City” in 2001, Chuck Klosterman has been one of the most successful novelists and essayists in America. As he writes in his contribution to this book, Klosterman “enjoys writing about big, unwieldy ideas” as they circulate in culture, in people, in music, and in sports. The 22 other philosophers writing alongside Klosterman
couldn’t agree more. They offer their own take on the concepts and puzzles that fascinate him and take up many of Klosterman’s various challenges to answer brain-twisting “hypertheticals” or classic ethical quandaries.
