Simon Critchley: Humor Noir (2009)

Simon Critchley, well known English Philosopher currently working in The New School, gives and interesting and enjoyable lecture from the Walker Art Centre on the nature of humour (2009).  The talk (98mins)  ranges from the definition and possibilities of the comic, to humor’s ethical limits, and to the functions of humour in culture, between societies and in visual art.  It is based on his 2002 book, On Humour.
