This might shock you, but not everything you see in movies is real. There really is not a real life Infinity Gauntlet for you to snap your fingers with. But that doesn’t mean movies have no themes and lessons that actually translate to the real world. Our guest today is Philosophy Professor Wayne Yuen of Ohlone College in Fremont, who has written many books about the various ethical lessons presented in movies. Today we talk with Professor Yuen about how movies and tv shows can teach us ethical real world lessons and consequences.
