Ten Traditions from Antiquity to Postmodernism
2021, 350 S, Gb, (Gruyter)
Contrary to common opinion, philosophy's relations with the comic are profound and complex, yet surprisingly understudied. Amir conceptualizes the relations that philosophy entertains with the comic in ten traditions, eight dating from antiquity and two from modern and postmodern times. She explains how the view that philosophy is inimical to the comic originated and invites the reader to re-evaluate philosophy's attitude towards the comic.
