, In the last two decades, interest in the emotions has increased significantly in various disciplines such as psychology, neurobiology, social anthropology, sociology, history, philosophy and linguistics. Although the individual disciplines are studying overlapping issues in relation to emotions, the scientific approaches to these issues have often remained unrelated. This gap is especially obvious between the sciences and the humanities, where cooperative approaches hardly exist. All branches concerned realize that this missing interdisciplinary cooperation is a shortcoming and are thus demanding that the interaction between the disciplines should increase. Debate on emotions is, to a great extent, still governed by dichotomous views; one group regarding the emotions as primarily biological, the other considering them as primarily socio-cultural. Most attempts to theorize emotions tend to reduce them to one side or the other of this traditional nature-nurture opposition, and only a small minority of recent approaches attempt to overcome these forms of reductionism. The editors of this work aim to transcend these dichotomies as well as the disciplinary boundaries that still dominate the study of emotions. Their aim is to develop a theoretical and methodological framework which allows an analysis of emotions as a complex, multi-layered process, in which biological, cultural, social and individual components interact equally. This book gathers researchers from various disciplines, such as neurobiologists, philosophers, sociologists, developmental, physiological and social psychologists as well as social anthropologists, working together to establish an integrative model of emotion research.
