This study focuses on response to comedy. The author maintains we respond rather mindlessly to comic effect. Comedy itself, in the philosophical sense, is seen as play. The play impulse is manifest in numerous forms from theater to painting, the novel to sculpting, poetry to cartooning; and each medium has its own semiotic language.
