sixth form philosophy lessons on ethics segued with sections of Dark Side of The Moon,
This review is from: Darkside, Tom Stoppard A Play For Radio Incorporating The Dark Side Of The Moon By Pink Floyd (Audio CD)
Emily (See Emily Play?) finds herself caught up in a world of characters from ethical thought experiments generated by her Philosophy teacher Mr Baggott - a boy killed by a diverted train, a fat man thrown out of a deflating balloon, Mr Baggott as a Nietzschean ubermensch parachuting from a doomed plane leaving the pilot, a banker and a politician. All the time (ticking away the moments that make up a dull day) trying to understand The Good while The Bad merrily continues on its path unperturbed at lack of definition. Captured by The Witch Hunter Emily and the boy attempt to resolve The Prisoner's Dilemma after Emily makes a speech about the importance of kindness.
This play is pretty much the content of sixth form philosophy lessons on ethics segued with sections of Dark Side of The Moon. As such I enjoyed it (reading helped to make sense of it) and no doubt will be inflicting it on my philosophy students as a Christmas 'treat' at the end of term next year!
