colorless green ideas sleep furiously

"Sensus communis is originally a Roman notion of the shared ‘communal sense’ that facilitates communicative understanding. The most important philosophers of the modern age who have discussed it at length are Giambattista Vico, Anthony, Earl of Shaftesbury (as the basis for wit and humor), Immanuel Kant and Hans-Georg Gadamer. Since there is much disagreement on the very notion of sensus communis, this video takes its cue from J.L. Godard by briefly examining the relation between understanding humour and agreeing on a particular cognitive interpretation of the Madison."
