Marcuse examines the idea of the joke and how this form of expression invites effective communication. It is Mr. Marcuse's belief that information of many kinds may be more readily retained and applied if in addition to more staid and traditional explanations, humorous material, when possible and feasible, is also presented. This can occur in such facets of life as child development, health, aesthetics, prejudice, racism, sex, and the like. In addition, the author explores the whys and wherefores of 'sick' humor, the role of the pun, in-jokes--in short, the many meanings of the funny. ". Bookseller Inventory # 2796
