Abstract

Synopsis:
Two professors engage in deep conversation about deep thoughts—unbordered thinking, epistemic compassion, inter‐ being, democratic learning, intellectual freedom and culinary cosmologies—until they encounter a third. He verifies yet upturns their worlds with an absurdist joke. The professors then realize that humour is sometimes more divine than love. Laughter, after all, affirms the humanity behind all relations and relationality.
This play was written by L. H. M. Ling, and posthumously edited by A. H. M. Nordin.
