The authors present a theory of humor why we laugh and compare it to past theories of humor practically claiming that this is the first one that achieves perfection the tone is uite hubristic Briefly humor is a debugging process ie it identifies a fallacy in some mental model that we have and this is an invaluable survival skill and hence evolutionarily rewarded with feelings of pleasure Ie a joke or even a naturally occurring humorous situation sets up a mental space in our minds with an insidiously inserted fallacy and the punch line reveals the fallacyThe book is rather heavy reading in part because of the use of a lot of jargon that professional philosophers may take for granted phenomenology phenomenological epistemically epistemology epistemological although the heavy reading is alleviated by some excellent jokes peppered throughout the book In that sense it seems to be aimed at scholars in philosophy and AI than at the casual readerStill well worth a read if you are interested in how the brain works neuroscience AI etc we propose that Mother Nature bribes us with candies metaphorically to get our brains to do all the tedious debugging that they must do if they are to live dangerously with the unruly piles of discoveries and mistakes that we generate in our incessant heuristic search She cannot just order the brain to do all the necessary garbage collection and debugging the way a computer programmer can simply install subroutines that slavishly take care of this She has to bribe the brain with pleasure That is why we experience mirthful delight when we catch ourselves wrong footed by a concealed inference error Finding and fixing these time pressured misleaps would be constantly annoying hard work if nature hadn t arranged for it to be funThe picture that emerges is a time pressured involuntary heuristic search for valid expectations which generates mental spaces in which elements are constantly being tested According to this model then basic humor occurs when1 an active element in a mental space that has2 covertly entered that space for one reason or another and is3 taken to be true ie epistemically committed within that space4 is diagnosed to be false in that space simply in the sense that it is the loser in an epistemic reconciliation process 5 and trivially the discovery is not accompanied by any strong negative emotional valenceAn interesting book for people who are into cognitive science philosophy etc If you have only the layperson s interest I suppose it could seem too academic but I liked it If you are easily offended by dirty jokes you will probably be offended by this book since it includes many dirty jokes However the authors make the point that an objective survey of humor must admit that much of humor is dirty and any realistic theory of humor cannot ignore such a large percentage of the phenomena it seeks to explain For example would you want to be operated on by a surgeon who gets sueamish around blood EB White is said to have remarked Analyzing humour is like dissecting a frog Few people are interested and the frog dies of it I am one of those people who started out very interested but I couldn t wade through the academic prose of this book I had to skim most of it having lost interest and the will to live The title implies some Inside jokes are the pinnacle of pretension and signify an author that aspires to the lowest of the low in comedic uips They are the type of joke that says that any person who doesn t happen to be in a select group of a few people are not a part of the joke and wouldn t get it anyway What is this What is this abstaining from the hard work of making a good joke To make a joke with mass appeal and universality is one of the most challenging aspects of the medium of comedy The onus of the efficacy of a joke is on the comedian and not who happens to understand an arbitrary set of limited nown references How many times has someone made a reference that only two people in the room get They all smirk while everyone else suirms in the awkward waft of unknowing that follows I can personally attest to the people who aspire to this type of joking and it never turns out well for them In fact it leads to a further marginalization of their inclusive group Groups that aspire to buttress their own views and opinions behind a wall of esoteric allusions only further the superior than thou mentality that informs their jokes in the first place The jokers come under the impression that no one else is allowed in
on the joke they create given that othersthe joke they create given that others never get it and therefore they abstain from even trying to make the jokes accessible Perhaps this is routed in personal experience when they were made to look foolish for trying to explicate their high minded personal interests in mixed company Perhaps they even took personal offense for the fact that their closely felt interests were not accepted and were even met with derision obviously the less people involved in said interest or in group the personal it becomes So it is uite plausible that they react By Hiding
Behind This Wall Of ObscurityThis Wall Of Obscurity behind this wall of obscurity only those deemed worthy may enter protecting them from the open court of majority opinion And this would obviously shed light upon why they make such jokes but it is to faulty ends It will only further the derision and disapproval that drove them away from including others on their jokes Just listen to what Jay Rubin says about it bit ya you fickers don t make those jokes any I ll get my payback on you batches Then you ll give me penky panic that I haven t read enough literary pulp Don t make me get DD He ll tell you what s up I ll throw cabbage at your faces And then you ll think Mark iz gawhjus The Steve s will come by and get you Stephen M is wearing his blue IJ speedo They all be going to penkfest and yell at Jus tin for haitin on all the D Mitch they re reading and sign up for the J N M booklist when he says Don t Fucking Wonder because he s been drinking and typing at 5 in the morning in Korea And then Ian ll turnip and write a bunch of Haiku s that beet you across the face thyme after thyme What music are you listening to while readingreviewing this eh eh Go write interviews then What do I need to write a 100 word pr cis now Or I ll just come beat you over the head with Women and Men Penis bananas And rockets coming out of penises in everyone s books I m being conditioned by ya ll and the dogs won t shut up No wait that s the cats they re talking to me again while naked Japanese women want to have sex with me IFFERELAINE s POSTING NAUGHTY PICS I hope this makes BB s reviewing hall of fame And then we can have celebrity death matches with all our books We can do it all night long My books can beat up your books I ll just record this on the Big Audio Project anyway Yeah yeah this has nothing to do with the book Flag it Just don t tie this to a chair and beat it with a hose LGM Karen reads soooo many fracking books Oh well we ll just start up another group read anyway I feel like I should give this a one star review but also a three star review Ergo the compromiseOne stars for its personal appeal I found it boring Considering I love pop cog in general I found this a little surprising On reflection I realized this book s appeal except perhaps to comedians and professionals in the cog biz is theoretical It is unlikely that any disease will be cured if someone nails the theory of funniness and the only profound change foreseeable in society at large will be when someone creates a humorbot which appears to be some ways off I ve read plenty of books that only have theoretical applications but they help me understand social problems that I find important such as how the cognition of morality heightens partisanship and reduces the likelihood of our civilization solving some pressing problemsThree stars for those that do find the theory of humor appealing Even for them this is a pretty dry book I thinkFor someone who wants to create jokes or humor there is plenty of material here that will provoke thought as to where to experiment and why those approaches are likely to workOh there is some humor interspersed of course There The Best Inside Jokes ↑UPJOKE↑ Inside Jokes I was digging in the garden when I found a chest full of gold coins I was about to run inside and tell my wife But then I remembered why I was digging a hole in the garden Some people say was an inside job But is a part time job As I slipped my finger slowly inside her hole I could immediately feel it getting wetter and wetter I slid my finger back out and Inside joke Wikipdia Une inside joke ou private joke parfois PJ dans l' argot Internet en franais.
