Jokes : philosophical thoughts on joking matters by Ted Cohen( Book )

23 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jokes is a book of jokes and a book about them. Cohen loves a good laugh, but as a philosopher, he is also interested in how jokes work, why they work, and when they don't. The delight at the end of a joke is the result of a complex set of conditions and processes, and Cohen takes us through these conditions in a philosophical exploration of humor. He considers questions of audience, selection of joke topics, the ethnic character of jokes, and their morality, all with plenty of examples that will make you either chuckle or wince. Jokes: more humorous than other philosophy books, more philosophical than other humor books."--Jacket
Thinking of others : on the talent for metaphor by Ted Cohen( Book )

20 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Thinking of Others, Ted Cohen argues that the ability to imagine oneself as another person is an indispensable human capacity - as essential to moral awareness as it is to literary appreciation - and that this talent for identification is the same as the talent for metaphor. To be able to see oneself as someone else, whether the someone else is a real person or a fictional character, is to exercise the ability to deal with metaphor and other figurative language. The underlying faculty, Cohen argues, is the same - simply the ability to think of one thing as another when it plainly is not." "An original meditation on the necessity of imagination to moral and aesthetic life, Thinking of Others is an important contribution to philosophy and literary theory."--Jacket

Aesthetics and ethics : essays at the intersection by Jerrold Levinson( Book )

2 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This major collection of new essays stands at the border of aesthetics and ethics and deals with charged issues of practical import: art and morality, the ethics of taste, censorship, and the objectivity of aesthetic judgments. As such its potential interest is by no means confined to professional philosophers; it should also appeal to art historians and critics, literary theorists, and students of film and the media. Prominent philosophers in both aesthetics and ethics tackle a wide array of issues. Some of the questions explored include: Can art be morally enlightening and, if so, how? If a work of art is morally better, does that make it better as art? Is morally deficient art to be shunned or even censored? Do subjects of artworks have rights as to how they are represented? Do artists have duties as artists and duties as human beings and, if so, to whom? How much tension is there between the demands of art and the demands of life? Is there such a thing as a personal aesthetic and, if so, what justification does it stand in need of? How much agreement can we reasonably expect to achieve in ethical and aesthetic matters as compared with scientific ones?
