Terry Jones was a comedian before he became a filmmaker and this book takes takes his comedy seriously philosophically. Robert Bernasconi claims that Jones' work uses irreverence and parody to dismantle deeply ingrained forms of thought. Bernasconi's Terry Jones is saying something significant through his films: whether it's challenging the nature of intellectual authority and the canon or poking fun at religion, politics and, even, philosophy! An original, well-conceived exploration of a member of Monty Python who deserves to be taken seriously on his own.
