Overview

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?').
