Funny Bones: On the Psychology of Comedy, with James Hollis, PhD
1501 Cherry St
A funny thing happens on the way to the grave—we often pause to laugh. Why do we laugh? What is comedy? How is it related to its cousin tragedy? Dour Freud wrote a book on jokes, and Jung, noted for his Olympian laughter, barely touches the subject. Various perspectives on comedy will be illustrated with jokes, so be prepared to laugh. In fact, please bring a joke of your own.
James Hollis, Ph. D., is a Jungian Analyst, Director of the Jung Society of Washington, D.C., and author of the forthcoming Living an Examined Life and other books
