Was ist ein Lacheln? Ein unwillkurlicher Reflex? Ein Paarbindungssignal? Oder nur der Standardzustand der Gesichtsmuskulatur? Wie funktioniert Lacheln? Und was bedeutet es? Vom erleuchteten Gesichtsausdruck des Heiligen Buddha bis zum lusternen Grinsen des "Huhnergrapschers" im Holland des 17. Jahrhunderts, vom Geheimnis der Mona Lisa bis zur Grinsekatze aus Alice im Wunderland, vom Sittlich-Keuschen bis zum Derb-Geschmacklosen prasentiert Angus Trumble aufschlussreiche Einsichten in die kulturelle, physiologische, kunstlerische und literarische Geschichte des universellsten aller menschlichen Ausdrucke, des Lachelns. Seit Beginn der Zivilisation hat das Lacheln eine verwirrende Fulle an Bedeutungen durchlaufen, das von hochster Entruckung uber die helle Freude bis zum kuhlen, makellosen Lacheln der Sprecher im Fernsehen reicht. Ob hinterlistig oder unzuchtig, freundlich oder boshaft, ungezogen oder hoflich, ob Grinsen oder Zahnefletschen - all diese Ausdrucksformen beruhen auf einem gemeinsamen physiologischen Prozess. Angus Trumble verbindet in seinem Buch Gelehrtheit, Witz und Charme zu einem erhellenden Bericht uber die Kunst des Lachelns im weitesten Sinne. Seine Bildbeispiele reichen dabei von den Gemalden des 19. Jahrhunderts bis zur Zahnpasta-Reklame unserer Tage. Lacheln uberschneidet sich mit zahlreichen grundlegenden Aspekten der menschlichen Erfahrung wie Gluck, Liebe, Sex, Demut und Verderbtheit - ganz zu schweigen von Lippenstift und kosmetischer Chirurgie. Es gibt Fragen uber Fragen: Warum lacheln wir? Lachelt nur der Mensch? Ab wann benutzen Babys Lacheln als Kommunikationsmittel? Wie kommt und geht das Lacheln in der Mode? Wer erfand eigentlich das Smiley-Emotikon? (Es war nicht Forrest Gump.) Warum sagen die Englander und Deutschen "cheese," die Danen "appelsin" (Orange), die Finnen "muikku" (eine Fischsorte) und die Koreaner "kim chi" (Chinakohl)? Und was steht wirklich hinter dem ratselhaftem Lacheln der Mona Lisa, das uns immer noch fasziniert? Eine kleine Geschichte des Lachelns ist nicht nur eine zugleich spielerische und gelehrte Untersuchung der unwillkurlichsten Muskelkontraktion, zu der unser Korper fahig ist, sondern wirft auch verbluffende Schlaglichter auf uns Menschen als "soziale Tiere."
