The Bedford Spotlight Reader series brings critical topics to life in a portable, cost-effective reader. In this volume, you’ll explore these questions: What takes place when we laugh? When and where does humor occur? Who (or what) is a comedian? What is the function of satire in a democratic society? How do you write a comic argument?
Readings by psychologists, philosophers, comedians, scholars, journalists, cartoonists, and others take up these questions and more. This book helps you form your own questions and responses as you investigate this popular and intellectually rich topic. Visit macmillanlearning.com/spotlight.
