    On Humour Thinking in Action eBook ¸ Humour Thinking humour ebok, thinking download, action kindle, On Humour mobile, Thinking in free, Humour Thinking in mobile, On Humour Thinking in Action KindleCritchley's analysis of humor is mostly in error though it points toward the true theory of humor that I presented in 2011 having begun to develop it in 2008 How does he point in the right direction? While he focuses on the fictional notion of objects or animals bestowed with humanity this happens to be a key image of diminutive self deception of superiority Rather than for the reasons Critchley gives we find the animal as human funny for the simpler reason that it represents a kind of small scale ambition the desire to be manHow anyone can deny a principle like that and prefer the threadbare alternatives objectively is beyond me Is it worth it to reject something so ingenious and original as that all to support the inferior status quo? Surely you can understand an argument as simple as this so if you don't agree or fail to act you are delinquent By flouting the rule of reason you refuse to grow up You are being asked
