Yesterday I had a conversation with a fairly famous Dutch television producer (John de Mol) in preparation for the course I’m teaching at the university of Leiden.
I wanted to speak about reality shows and truth.
Mr. de Mol used the same metaphor as the sociologist Mr. Goudsblom: peeling an onion.
But Mr. Goudsbom was speaking about the quest for truth; Mr. de Mol was speaking about people.
This is not a moralistic remark.
I liked John de Mol.
