Summary/Abstract: The clinical psychologist writes on the multiplicity of laughter and its interpretation in philosophy, psychology and in the common understanding. The train of thought also touches on the classical interpretations of Bergson and Freud when examining the role of laughter in human communication. Based on the results of recent research, it provides an overview of the relieving effects of laughter on stress. Cases from international and Hungarian praxis serve as examples for the possible benefits arising from the appreciation of humour and laughter in life and in the service of maintaining health.
