Haley Scholars Fall 2013 Reading Groups
"The relationship between comedy and wrongness suggests that we laugh at the errors of others not our of self-satisfaction but out of self-recognition" (322). --Kathryn Schulz
In chapter 15, Kathryn Schulz's discussion of error and comedy is especially memorable. She also offers extended ideas about analogies between art and error. She notes at one point that "our mistakes, when we face up to them, show us both the world and the self from previously unseen angles, and remind us to care about perspectives other than our own" (332).
