Revue de presse

Excellent introduction. (Steven Poole, the guardian)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Humour has been discovered in every known human culture and thinkers have discussed it for over two thousand years. Humour can serve many functions; it can be used to relieve stress, to promote goodwill among strangers, to dissipate tension within a fractious group, to display intelligence, and some have even claimed that it improves health and fights sickness. In this Very Short Introduction Noel Carroll examines the leading theories of humour including The Superiority Theory and The Incongruity Theory. He considers the relation of humour to emotion and cognition, and explores the value of humour, specifically in its social functions. He argues that humour, and the comic amusement that follows it, has a crucial role to play in the construction of communities, but he also demonstrates that the social aspect of humour raises questions such as 'When is humour immoral?' and 'Is laughing at immoral humour itself immoral?'. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

A really good introduction 23 mars 2014
Par Sixto J. Castro - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This short work is part of a series of brief introductions to various philosophical issues, published by Oxford University Press, in which various scholars analyze, in an affordable but deep way, some questions in which they are experts. Noël Carroll has written extensively on the subject of this brief introduction, and he is undoubtedly one of the thinkers of reference on the subject of humour. So this little book is a highly recommended approach to that vast subject. If someone has followed Carroll's work on the topic, (s)he will understand what I mean.
To begin with, Carroll explains and reviews the different theories that attempt to explain the nature of humour (superiority, incongruity, release...), and illustrates each of the theses by means of multiple examples (jokes, TV series...). He focuses especially on the incongruity theory, which is the most widely accepted, and develops his own proposal. The book also analyzes the relationship between humour, emotion and knowledge, in order to see whether we can really hold that comic amusement is an emotional state, and studies the relationship between humour and value, as well as the moral concerns involved in humour. It includes also a brief critical bibliography of each of the issues discussed in it.
I don't thing anyone can get a better introduction to the topic. Carroll knows what he is talking about and is able to introduce the many nuances of the topic in such a way that any reader can easily see and understand the status quaestionis. I find it really useful.

Examining a joke 25 mars 2014
Par V. Aguilar - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is a very methodical analysis of humor by philosophy professor Noel Carroll, who has been described as a foremost philosopher of our time. He has written over 15 books on such piquant topics as his most famous: "The Philosophy of Horror." Now we have a really fascinating exploration of the morality and cultural value of jokes. Well worth a look.

Perfect 21 mars 2014

What a wonderful book. Now I know why I laugh at jokes, and why risky ones are sometimes the funniest. Plus, the book has lots of good jokes.

Written poorly 31 janvier 2015
Par Marina Sadik - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I had to read this book for a class. Although it does give you an idea about humour theories, it's written in the worst possible way. Too much clutter, not concise at all. Did not enjoy reading. Don't read it unless you absolutely have to.
