What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is an abbreviation that can be seen on fliers for entertainment companies, in some industry news publications and as part of short hand note taking. The word is also often used to refer to a specific genre of music, film or video games.

Entertainment’ is a great thing to have, it makes you feel good, and sometimes even euphoric. It can stimulate the brain to realease seratonin and other chemicals. Many entertainments also hit on topics that the mind was evolved to deeply react to, like backstabbing and murder.

For example, the Scheherazade story in the Persian professional storytelling tradition has inspired many works of art – from orchestral music to films and video games.
