FallWinter Issue 05 - HUMOUR
The French philosopher Dominique Noguez numerated explicitly in one of his
lectures, entitled with the bizarre title L´humour n´existe
pas, what is humour and what isn´t.
Humour is not a laughter, not a smile, isn´t comedy, neither spontaneity nor joviality, not even happiness. To tell the truth about humour: There is nothing more complicated than humour. But we talk about a discreet, wherever possible invisible complexity.
(from: Telepolis, Helmut Merschmann)
