The Existential Joss Whedon. A book about evil and human freedom in Buffy, Angel, Firefly and Serenity. Apparently Joss' works "are part of an existentialist tradition that stretches back from... Jean Paul Satre... to Fyodor Dostoevsky". It's all very deep stuff. Anyhow the book is out in September and is available for pre-order at Amazon.com.
From what I remember Joss got all existentialist in his Objects in Space commentary.
If you're not quite up to speed on existentialism, you could do no worse than check out the relevevant Wikipedia entry and use it as a bluffer's guide.
