About this book

Just how bad is television? Drawing on a range of theoretical sources including Husserl Lacan, Lefebvre, Sartre, Schutz and Adam Smith, this book takes a phenomenological approach to the small screen to offer an original sociological approach to television and its contribution to moral culture of late modern societies.

About the authors

Reviews

"Dant's Television and the Moral Imaginary represents a welcome contribution to television studies and serves as a bit of a palliative for the decades of television scholarship that would reduce the medium to the Rodney Dangerfield of media platforms. In fact, Dant's appreciable work represents what's good about emergent television scholarship in the digital age." - David Craig, International Journal of Communication (2013)
