I'll be upfront---sometimes the only time I can grasp some of the concepts of philosophy is if they're put into a pop culture reference frame. Not that I don't get them if they can be explained in basic language---let's face it, it ain't hard to understand Schodinger's Cat if you break it down to 'it can be described as both alive and dead if you haven't opened the door to check'---but some theories aren't so mind-bending if you can readily apply them to something.
That said, I didn't like 'Transformers and Philosophy' as much as I might have. This is mostly because the bulk of the essayists chose to base their pieces off of the movies---which, given that movie Bumblebee is pictured on the front, isn't unreasonable---and the few others touched basically only upon G1 and (briefly) Heromasters. However, there are, off the top of my head, at least EIGHT other different continuities for the Transformers franchise so far, not including the movies and other mentioned series; I don't think I'm being unreasonable in thinking that a collection of philosophy pieces on Transformers should touch upon more than three of those continuities. (On a side note, I think part of my general dislike of this book is that I find myself indifferent towards the movies continuity---they try so hard, bless their sparks, but they just don't quite succeed. They're decent for whittling away an afternoon, though.)
