Abstract

Present-day TV series have more impact on society that consumes them than other audiovisual fictions which have less duration and success.

This new condition shows how this TV fiction introduces, perhaps unconsciously, certain contributions made by contemporary anthropological philosophy which are trying to defend the human difference.
