In this very short acknowledgment I think I’d like to accomplish two things. First, I’d like to give a sense of the affect that having seen Richard in action has had on me. Second, I’d like to point to an important development in philosophy of humor contributed by Richards in his work “A Philosopher Looks at the Sense of Humor” which I believe needs to be central to the philosophical discussion of humor and joking going forward.
