Homer's Odyssey

I'd like to take this class in Berkeley, where they use 'The Simpsons' to discuss philosophy.

"Lest anyone think this is a course that academically challenged jocks seek for easy credits to stay eligible for football, Shores quizzed the students on (a) their knowledge of philosophic principles; and (b) "The Simpsons." The majority of those accepted were upperclassmen with majors ranging from philosophy to economics to English literature."
