Monty Python and philosophy nudge nudge, think think! /

From the 1970s cult TV show, Monty Python's Flying Circus, to the current hit musical Spamalot, the Monty Python comedy troupe has been at the center of popular culture and entertainment. The Pythons John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, and Terry Gilliam are increasingly recognized and honored for their creativity and enduring influence in the worlds of comedy and film. Monty Python and Philosophy extends that recognition into the world of philosophy. Fifteen experts in topics like mythology, Buddhism, feminism, logic, ethics, and the philosophy of science bring their expertise to bear on Python movies such as Monty Python's Life of Brian and Flying Circus mainstays such as the Argument Clinic, the Dead Parrot Sketch, and, of course, the Bruces, the Pythons' demented, song-filled vision of an Australian philosophy department. Monty Python and Philosophy follows the same hit format as the other titles in this popular series and explains all the philosophical concepts discussed in laymen's terms.

  • "It's . . . no hallucination. You really are reading the cover of a book entitled Monty Python and Philosophy. Though highly improbable, the book actually exists, which is proof enough that humankind did not get here by accident. ''Here '' in your case means looking at the cover of this book, clearly demonstrating that you ought to acquire it (the whole book, that is, not just the cover). Otherwise, if your brain hurts, you might as well go consult a milk delivery man impersonating a psychiatrist.With its logical paradoxes, clever wordplay, and focus on the absurdities of life, the work of Monty Python appeals to everyone with a philosophical bent, the more bent the better. Twenty-one surprising chapters by professional philosophers and amateur Python fans celebrate the intersection of rigorous, profound TV comedy and zany, madcap metaphysics. Surprise is the chief quality of this book. Surprise, provocation, and a fanatical devotion to the enlightenment of the masses . . . ''Monty Python and Philosophy is an entertaining treatise on how humor can illuminate the deepest questions about ethics, morality, individual responsibility, and other so-called serious concepts (such as: 'Is the parrot dead or just resting?'). ''"
