Breaking Bad and Philosophy:
Adam (Section 4, "Nothing Here but Chemistry")
Chandler (Section 7, "Pink, White and Blue")
Charles (Section 2, "Equations Must Balance")
Christopher (Section 5, "Now You're Cooking")
Dylan (Section 3, "There's Meth in My Madness")
John Connor (Section 6, "Free Radicals")
