Observation –The life and death of Bentham Episode
I was nerding out the other night and rewatching the Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham. I noticed somethng that slipped by me on my first watch.
When John is talking to Charles outside. The scene where he gives him the fake Id’s with the name Bentham. John say’s “Jeremy Bentham?” and Charles replies “He was an english philosopher. Your parents obviously had a sense of humour when they named you. So I thought it a suitable name”
Something along those lines.
I find that very interesting. How would a philosphers name be funny in relation to Locke? He in no way shape or form is a philospher. John Locke was a “real world” philospher though. Any ideas folks?
