Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Why We Laugh The idea which prompted this volume was to string such humors as were illustrative, upon some philosophic threads, which had been floating in my mind. Has not humor a philosophy of its own - physical, mental, and moral? It is said by Hazlitt, in his article on wit and humor, that you can not give a reason why you laugh; that people must laugh of themselves, or not at all. Without denying that we laugh with spontaneous impulse, and sometimes the more, at any restraint upon this impulse, yet the very categories of the critic himself prove that the laugh has a rational philosophy. They answer the Horatian query - Quid Rides? Inquiring of one accomplished in physical science, and an expert in dissecting the parts of the human frame, he, unlike old Burton, found no melancholy in the anatomy. What portion of the human body engages in the act of laughing? I asked him. He responded, No one part in particular; all parts work. Health is called hearty because it results from the combination of all parts in the laugh. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
