PHL 240 - Philosophy of Humor

This course will explore the questions: What is meant by claiming that something is humorous or funny and why? What is the relationship between humor, reason, and the emotions? How might one understand the ethics of laughter and humor? Insights from scholars including Plato, Aristotle, Hobbes, Kant, Schopenhauer, Spencer, Freud, Bergson and contemporary authors will be discussed in a seminar-style class setting. The application of theory to everyday life will be examined and discussed through the presentation of non-philosophical examples of humor and jokes in both print and audio-visual mediums.
