SOMETHING MECHANICAL ENCRUSTED ON THE LIVING OR, “QUE SIGNIFIE LE RIRE?”

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Theories of laughter exemplify the radical difference between descriptive language (“labels”) and actuality (“what occurs, including labels”). This difference is figured by Henri Bergson in his classic treatment of laughter as the mismatch between the mechanical and the living, a differential locus modeled herein with the help of a banana peel.
