Review of 'Le rire, essai sur la signification du comique'

Review of 'Le rire, essai sur la signification du comique' Reviews the book, Le rire, essai sur la signification du comique by H. Bergson (1900).

Abstract

Reviews the book, Le rire, essai sur la signification du comique by H. Bergson (1900). The material of this book appeared originally as three articles in the Revue de Paris, but it well deserves reproduction in this more permanent form. For in attempting a theory of the comic based largely upon social relations, the author has certainly contributed to the better understanding of certain species of the comic, even if his theory be not accepted as wholly adequate. The main positive thesis is that the comic results from the social life, and always shows a certain lack of adaptation to society on the part of the individual.
