Хельмут Плеснер: смех и плач

Философские науки. 2014. № 12. С. 66-77.

The article deals with Helmuth Plessner's philosophical and anthropological theory of  laughing and crying. The  theory  implies a hermeneutic study of specific forms of  human expressivity, in which the philosopher introduces his view on phenomenology and hermeneutics, known as hermeneutics of nature. Bodily being  is at  the center of phenomenological description and hermeneutical explanation in Plessner's philosophy: here  the  immediate  emotional  experience  of  the world  on  the  bodily  level  finds  its expression  in  the  theory of  laughing and crying, a study of  forms of specific human expressivity.
