[Ladislaus] Michael, I have a seemingly frivolous question. Humans like to party. To drink, dance, socialize, throwing balls and masquerades, playing party games, go to cocktail parties, discos, formal dinners, etc.
From whence comes this party-impulse? Is is just a marginal break from more heavy and important things, a way of “taking a rest” and recuperate? Or is is in itself something central and important? That is my question.
