    REVIEW à Humour By Noël Carroll Humour By Noël CarroSome scholars refer to the stimulus in humor as the holy grail of humor studies Though this is appropriate it gives the impression that the stimulus uestion is the only important one It would be eually if not useful if holy grail referred to both stimulus and response the two being inherently linked by the way they are definedThere is a theory that establishes such a link It is better than any of the ones Carroll mentions and was introduced in 2011 after 5 years of work On this view the stimuli of humor are allusions to or direct images of a self deceived superiority in a relatively small character while the response is a mental copy of this disposition The response is dispositional the inner feeling of amusement Th

    REVIEW à Humour By Noël Carroll Humour By Noël CarroI like the fact this book was brief I like it tried to tackle the very hard to tackle subjectuestion of What is Humour Is Humour an Emotion and What is the Purpose of Humour I think out of the three sections it presented the theories of humour the best However all three sections suffered from the fact this was written by a philosopher and not a psychologist in other words it was written by a non scientist and without any research to back his claims up it just becomes opinions not supported by facts but by cherry picked examples and sometimes not ev

    REVIEW à Humour By Noël Carroll Humour By Noël CarroNeedless to say a book that provides a philosophical introduction to the nature of humor will contain an element of humor In this case it's the degree of dead seriousness applied to the topic The philosophy of humor is of course no laughing matter which is what makes this book an example of its own thesis specifically the theory that the root of humor is incongruity and a deadpan discussion of humor as a subject worthy of philosophical examination is by the time you get well into this deceivingly long tiny type faced book is a joke in itselfThe incongruity of the formal academic language used a specific telling of a joke is a humor token humorous incongruity can be initially described as a problematization of sense builds up to a sort of in joke You can sort of imagine the author sitting with his grad students in a seminar and feeling rather pleased with himself that this course is written up in th

    REVIEW à Humour By Noël Carroll Humour By Noël CarroI have mixed feelings about this one Oxford's A Very Short Introduction series presents itself as a collection of broad overviews on a variety of topics A thinking man's wikipedia according to the inside cover However this volume argues very strongly in favour of the Incongruity Yheory to the point that it seems outright dismissive of other approaches to the study of humour Some theories that I find interesting such as the Benign Violation Theory aren't even mentioned While it is a very short book and can't mention every single idea on the topic far too much of the volume is taken up by arguments defending The Incongruity Theoery Some of the arguments are convincing some are not at all Still it is a perfectly enjoyable introduction to the
