Hello fellow philosophers,
I'm curious about what may seem a trivial topic. There is only one fictional program on television that seriously interests me. I wonder how many of you also like "House." I'm not talking about a program that tells you how to redecorate. I'm talking about the super-diagnostician, Gregory House, M.D. I think that what I like about it is that it's mostly about the thinking process, obsessive problem solving and about unconventionality. Is there anyone else on this blog who enjoys this show?
In a similar vein, I wonder what you think about the need for entertainment. In "Brave New World" (which I'm preparing for a presentation), life is about bread and circuses. New Worlders work and in their spare time are constantly entertained. There is no room for thought. Is there too much entertainment in our world? With respect -Joel
