Funny Bones: The Psychology of Comedy-audio

Type: Media
Price: $10.00


Instructors: James Hollis, PhD, and J. Pittman McGehee

What is funny, and why? What's in a laugh? What purpose does comedy serve in the life of the psyche, and how does it relate to its obverse (and closest relative), tragedy? Why did Sigmund Freud devote an entire book to the psychology of the joke? With characteristic wit and wisdom, these two wise guys pull our leg.

This lecture was originally recorded to cassette and has been digitally transferred. The audio quality may be lowered, but we have ensured that the lecture is completely audible.
