Menertawakan Absurditas Agar Tetap Waras: Humor, Nihilisme, dan Penertawa
AbstractLaughter is cloaking that has always assumed depth and shallowness. The construction of this article departs from the reading of Nietzsches aphoristic description in Guy Science concerning our question marks and the issue of intelligibility. The activity of laughing has personal dimension pointing to inner independence first; to a person who laugh. As long as words are part of the persona (phrosophon: mask) then the expression of laughter also points to the disguise. In reading Nietzsche, cloaking is not identical with hypocrisy. Humor can be a form of creative resistance even though it contains nihil aspect because it does not change any situation other than the possibility of being more tolerable. Nihilism was Nietzsches description of his day. The ability to laugh at oneself can be a healthy critique for those who claim to be godly. At least, in the Christian sphere laughter has religious dimension, containing the promise of salvation. In the Middle Ages, there was a tradition of humor and laughter as part of the Easter celebration (Risus Paschalis).
