Kevin Thinks : …about Outer Space, Confusing Expressions and the Perfectly Logical World of Asperger Syndrome

Funny Peculiar: Gershon Legman and the Psychopathology of Humor

Funny Peculiar: Gershon Legman and the Psychopathology of Humor

Why are jokes funny? Why do we laugh? In Funny Peculiar, Mikita Brottman demurs from recent scholarship that takes laughter– and the broader domain of humor and the comical–as a liberating social force and an endearing aspect of self-expression.

Brottman rethinks not only the mechanisms of humor but also the relation of humor to the body and the senses.
