    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Since the time of Aristotle, laughter has been widely appreciated as a key characteristic of being human, but in Christian culture and intellectual history, laughter has had a poor reputation and regarded as an unfathomable phenomenon. In an interdisciplinary study, theologian, and German scholar Max Lühl explores the multifaceted nature of this mysterious phenomenon and redefines the significance of laughter for Christian faith.
