    Philosophy of laughter Cognitive science is the interdisciplinary scientific study of minds as information processors. It includes research on how information is processed (in faculties such as perception, language, reasoning, and emotion), represented, and transformed in a (human or other animal) nervous system or machine (e.g., computer). Cognitive science consists of multiple research disciplines, including psychology, artificial intelligence, philosophy, neuroscience, anthropology, sociology, and education. It spans many levels of analysis, from low-level learning and decision mechanisms to high-level logic and planning; from neural circuitry to modular brain organization. Several philosophers have criticism of cognitive science, and as a result I have made positive cognitive science in a philosophic perceptive. In a common meaning it would be management philosophy, with support of science. Positive cognitive science is the management of cognitive science, mapping them together.... More > Today this most used in presentations in public speeches, with use of humor with meaning. It is widely used in political disciplines and comedy. With learning from techniques traditional philosophers like Socrates, Plato and Aristotle combining with natural language and semiotics. With modern technology, it is possible to use metrics, to gain understanding of how the amount of neurons in the human body increases, with positive thinking and understanding. Results are often laughter, as explain by Henri Bergson. Humor is complex task to make, and requires analytical, creative abilities with high level fuzzy logic, know as strong artificial intelligence. With continual creative development of the speech material, it would be possible to map Adam Smith´s and John Locke understanding of how to correct failing systems of management, when the invisible hand is activated. This work is written to gain an deeper understanding about the phenomena of laughter, and philosophy has gain understanding of human thinking. There have been writings about this theme before, from the philosophers like Plato to the newest work of the philosophers Henri Bergson and John Morreall. To gain a deeper understanding I have used empirical research on the topics of cognitive science, as a interdisciplinary science. With information systems and technology, it have been able for researcher to validate their finding, and map them into their different science. Research of how the brain responds to laughter is found, in neuroscience. In a philosophic matter, there was a need of understanding of the meaning of laughter, to understand if the thoughts of Aristotle claim of tragedy vs. Comic, where tragedy is a more serious matter than comedy. Laughter have been a mysterious theme, for centuries, while tragedy have been to some point understandable. As the society have evolved into a more digital world, the awareness of tragedy, with or without human beings, has become daily information Learning from neuroscience, there is a difference of the brain and the mind, which made me understand psychology and philosophy, and the difference. In the process of making laughter, I have used reverse engineering methodology, to get the understanding of how comic can be made. In the last part of the book I have pointed out some theories to be tools to creating laughter, like logic, intuition and creativity. The basic finding is that reverse psychology, mapping it into reverse philosophy. Which is the main topic, of the scientific contribution. While the understanding of H.Sapiens as being, with its belonging environment, is still in investigation of researchers in academic manner, able to record the knowledge to gain wisdom, for the future. To validate the academic work, I have used references to other research, along with established theories. In addition to the analytic work, I have made reasoning and additions to the established academic works, and puzzled them together. To get a relief of the meanings of the thoughtful theories, I have also used famous witty quotes as examples of humor, and hopefully a time of reflection on the topics. There are no possibles, only problems, says often the critical, and the optimistic, uses a different logic, and say, there are no problems, but infinite challenges and possibilities. Some of them stays as idea, and not developed into a innovative result, but thru essay it is possible to try, and that is the definition of the word essay. On the other hand there is a saying, do, do not, never try. Empirical research is essential model in philosophy and management.< Less
