What makes Larry a monster, and why doesn't he know that he's a monster? "Curb Your Enthusiasm and Philosophy" discusses philosophical answers to these questions. Some of the chapters discuss ethical and existential issues, such as whether Larry is a "bad apple" or perhaps worth emulating. Others talk about sexuality, religion, and race relations. There's a chapter on enthusiasm itself, another on giving gifts, and one on the philosophical significance of Larry's piercing stare into other people's eyes. Larry is not a typical philosopher: he doesn't ask questions about free will, or wonder whether the world outside our minds really exists. But that's only because he's more like Socrates than Descartes. Larry is a philosopher of the everyday. He describes us, and he tries to liberate us. He questions the value of our values, and recommends new ones. He tells us bitter truths about the way we live our lives, and he says and does the things that most of us wish we could. There's something heroic about his independence from social conventions, and there's something tragic about his tendency to hurt people with his frankness, which is rarely malicious. "Curb Your Enthusiasm and Philosophy" helps fans make sense of Larry David's world. These books teach philosophical wisdom by looking closely at entertainment icons. In each volume of this best-selling series, a team of sharp philosophical brains puts one pop culture subject (movie, TV show, or other topic) under the microscope, exposing its hidden philosophical implications in an instantly readable way.
