Vad är mat och vad är annat?: Cavell, skepticism, erkännande och komedi

Abstract [sv]

Genom en diskussion av en sketch ur en komediföreställning kommer jag att lyfta fram humorns och komedins relation till skepticismen som tema i Stanley Cavells filosofi. I The Claim of Reason utvecklar Cavell ett samband mellan skepticism och tragedi. Kopplingen mellan komedi och skepticism förblir mer antydd, och då i termer av ett slags symmetri med tragedi. Jag menar att när vi låter humor och komedin ta plats i relation till den skeptiska problematiken så kommer en asymmetri att visa sig mellan tragedi och komedi. Detta har att göra med komedin och humorns förmåga att innefatta och erkänna den smärta som finns i det tragiska. Jag diskuterar Cavells begrepp om erkännande (acknowledgment) och hävdar att begreppet behöver modifieras när vi talar om det slags erkännande som finns i en viss typ av humor.

Abstract [en]

In this essay I discuss, by way of an analysis of a scene from a comedy-show, the relation between humor and comedy and the theme of skepticism in the philosophy of Stanley Cavell. In The Claim of Reason, Cavell develops in detail the connection between skepticism and tragedy, but the connection between skepticism and comedy is only touched upon briefly and in terms of a symmetry with tragedy. I want to suggest that when we allow humor and comedy to take center stage in relation to the theme of skepticism, an asymmetry will emerge. In humor and comedy, there is a possibility of acknowledging the pain involved in tragedy. I discuss Cavell’s concept of acknowledgment and argue that it undergoes a modification when we consider certain forms of humor.
