"House and Philosophy"
Did you like the television series "House"? Did you know that Alcuin Library has the entire series available to check out? Did you know the library has the book, "House and Philosophy: Everybody Lies"? It is available at Clemens Library (PN1992.77.H63 H65 2009). Here is a peak at what it is about:

"Dr. Gregory House is arguably the most complex and challenging
antihero in the history of television, but is there more to this
self-important genius than gray matter and ego? This book takes a deeper
look at House to reveal the philosophical underpinnings of this popular
medical drama and its cane-waving curmudgeon's most outrageous
behavior. What emerges is a remarkable character who is part Sherlock
Holmes, part Socratic philosopher, part Nietzschean superman, part Taoist rhetorician, and not at all as screwed up as you might think."
