Human constructions

The Philosophers' Magazine 47 (47):120-126 (2009)
Anything comic has got to be basically serious – that’s what makes it funny. If there wasn’t anything at issue in comedy there wouldn’t be anything to laugh at. Similarly, if you’re writing about multiple universe theory, or whatever it happens to be, you can’t help seeing the funny side of it, because there are many, many funny aspects to a lot of philosophical and scientific ideas and it’s absolutely impossible to write them all with a completely straight face
