What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is the activity of providing entertainment. It encompasses everything from a personal selection of movies or music for enjoyment and relaxation to a public performance, such as theater, dance or comedy, that is intended to delight an audience. It can also involve activities such as sporting events, playing games, attending lectures or concerts, and creating visual art.

The activity of providing entertainment is now more extensive than ever before, thanks to the technological revolution in all media. Nevertheless, the concept remains the same: a form of entertainment is whatever makes people happy. In this context, happiness is often defined by triggering the brain to realease seratonin and dopamine, which are chemicals that make us feel good. Entertainment also hits on themes that the human mind was evolved to deeply respond to, such as backstabbing or murders.
