A Philosopher Looks at
The Sense of Humor
A Philosopher Looks at The Sense of Humor by Richard C. Richards is intended as a starting point for a philosophical discussion.
In this tour of the wide, wonderful world of the humorous, we touch upon such issues as what causes a sense of humor, whether it can be taught, what its value may be, how it is connected with happiness, and whether it should be placed on the endangered species list. Out of necessity we explore the habitat of the amusing, the entertaining, and the comedic.
There is considerable laughter in the world, and a more than abundant supply of things to laugh at. But since laughter and humor are only partially and not essentially connected, this may end up being a eulogy for the death of humor. Perhaps this book will cause it. We can only hope. (read more)

Poems That Almost Got Away
Reflections on Death and Life from Richard C. Richards
Poems That Almost Got Away: Reflections on Death and Life from Richard C. Richards is a collection of poems written over fifty years of his life.
He wrote them when something struck him, as he tried to bring some vague experience into focus. He wanted to record what was going on in his life. In some, he just wanted to get an experience down on paper. Many of the poems deal with death. That is a respectable topic for a philosopher, a poet or anyone else who wants to understand this crazy disease called life, and not simply to get through it with as little thought as possible. Death is a concern, but not a preoccupation. (read more)
