Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fifteen experts on topics like mythology, Buddhism, feminism, logic, ethics, and the philosophy of science bring their expertise to bear on Monty Python movies. This volume follows the same hit format as the other titles in this series and explains all the philosophical concepts in laymen's terms.

Book News Annotation:

These 21 chapters by professional philosophers and amateur Python fans celebrate the intersection of rigorous, profound comedy and madcap metaphysics. The papers demonstrate the ways humor can illuminate questions about ethics, morality, individual responsibility and other topics, including whether the dead parrot was dead or just resting, The Meaning of Life and Buddhism, and the Pythons' critique of language philosophy. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

From the 1970s cult TV show, Monty Pythons 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 Pythons 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 laymens terms.
