House is one of the top three television dramas on the air, pulling in more than 19 million viewers for each episode. This latest book in the popular Blackwell Philosophy and Pop Culture series takes a deeper look at the characters and issues raised in this Emmy Award-winning medical drama. How can a rude diagnostician also be a zen rhetorician? Do House and Socrates agree on the necessity of conflict? What is the meaning of life according to House? House and Philosophy offers entertaining answers to these and other fascinating questions viewers have about Dr. Gregory House and his medical team.
