Penguin Putnam
A humorous philosophical investigation into the existence of Santa—from a co–executive producer of The Big Bang Theory
 
Emmy award–winning comedy writer and philosophy scholar Eric Kaplan brilliantly turns a search for the truth about Santa into a laugh-out-loud metaphysical romp. Surveying everything from the analytic philosophy of Bertrand Russell and Ludwig Wittgenstein to Buddhism, Taoism, and Kabbalah, Kaplan alights on comedy—including The Big Bang Theory and Monty Python—as the best way to resolve life’s most profound paradoxes, including the existence of perfect moments, Santa, and even God. Does Santa Exist? is the perfect stocking stuffer for the deep thinker on everyone’s list.

Interesting theme. Knows his stuff. Probing questions. Language a tad too technical for before holiday reading. Something you want to have time to digest slowly with much thought.
