Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
Comic Relief: A Comprehensive Philosophy of Humor develops an inclusive theory that integrates psychological, aesthetic, and ethical issues relating to humor
  • Offers an enlightening and accessible foray into the serious business of humor
  • Reveals how standard theories of humor fail to explain its true nature and actually support traditional prejudices against humor as being antisocial, irrational, and foolish
  • Argues that humor’s benefits overlap significantly with those of philosophy
  • Includes a foreword by Robert Mankoff, Cartoon Editor of The New Yorker
