Welcome to the world of Arrested Development and the Bluths.The Bluth family foibles and character flaws are so painfully familiar that we both laugh and squirm in that shared awkward recognition of our own all too human faults. Sure, the Bluths seem oblivious of the gaping distance between their behavior and living a philosophically “good” life. But part of the comedic appeal of Arrested Development surely lies in the opportunities it provides us with important moral and philosophical issues to ponder. From Plato to Aristotle, from Descartes to Marx, Arrested Development and Philosophy draws from great philosophical minds to shed new light on the show’s key questions and captivating themes, including the nature of self-knowledge and happiness, business ethics and capitalist alienation, social class, the role of error in character development, and much more.
