Johnny Cash contained multitudes. The Man in Black has the most diverse following of any popular musician. He gave a voice to the poor and beaten down, and posed disturbing questions about violence, addiction, love, self-destruction, and meaning. In Johnny Cash and Philosophy, twenty-one philosophers explore the implications of the Johnny Cash myth and the Johnny Cash message. Their investigations uncover the distinctive relevance of Johnny Cash for moral responsibility, social justice, patriotism, romantic love, artistic creativity, class oppression, and individual identity.
