What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is a wide spectrum of activities that are aimed at giving pleasure and amusement. It includes the art of playing music, acting, reading books and writing for personal enjoyment. It also involves sports, games, attending live performances, visual arts and movies. The word entertainment derives from the Medieval Latin intertenere, meaning to hold inside.

Generally, the activities that are considered as entertainment are those that stimulate the brain to realease seratonin and dopamine. Entertainment also often hits on themes that the human mind was shaped to react deeply to, such as social backstabbing and murders.
