On Humour

Forum for European Philosophy dialogue

Humour is not to be confused with comedy and jokes. Humour concerns something that belongs to and can more or less pervade everyday life and conversation, not something restricted to comedy sketches or stand-up routines. In this dialogue we will explore everyday humour, and its distinctive regional and cultural variations. Are there principles of British humour that transcend class, profession, religion and region? Are there ‘cultures of humour’ across the world?

Simon Glendinning is a reader in European Philosophy at the European Institute, LSE and Director of the Forum for European Philosophy.
