Greek Humour

Definition of Greek Humour or Humor

The Basis for Jest in the West From the Greek Philosophers

"Western humour theory begins with Plato, who attributed to Socrates (as a semi-historical dialogue character) in the Philebus  the view that the essence of the ridiculous is an ignorance in the weak, who are thus unable to retaliate when ridiculed. Later, in Greek philosophy, Aristotle, in the Poetics, suggested that an ugliness that does not disgust is fundamental to humour."
