Emotional Lexicons

by Ute Frevert, Emotional Lexicons Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Emotional Lexicons books, Emotions are as old as humankind. But what do we know about them and what importance do we assign to them? Emotional Lexicons is the first cultural history of terms of emotion found in German, French, and English language encyclopaedias since the late seventeenth century. Insofar as these reference works formulated normative concepts, they documented shifts in the way the educated middle classes were taught to conceptualise emotion by a literary medium targeted specifically to them. As well as providing a record of changing language use (and the surrounding debates), many encyclopaedia articles went further than simply providing basic knowledge; they also presented a moral vision to their readers and guidelines for behaviour. Implicitly or explicitly, they participated in fundamental discussions on human nature: Are emotions in the mind or in the body? Can we "read" another person's feelings in their face? Do animals have feelings? Are men less emotional than women? Are there differences between the emotions of children and adults? Can emotions be "civilised"? Can they make us sick? Do groups feel together? Do our emotions connect us with others or create distance? The answers to these questions are historically contingent, showing that emotional knowledge was and still is closely linked to the social, cultural, and political structures of modern societies. Emotional Lexicons analyses European discourses in science, as well as in broader society, about affects, passions, sentiments, and emotions. It does not presume to refine our understanding of what emotions actually are, but rather to present the spectrum of knowledge about emotion embodied in concepts whose meanings shift through time, in order to enrich our own concept of emotion and to lend nuances to the interdisciplinary conversation about them.

Un Doing Flamenco

by Maya Victoria Haeckel, Un Doing Flamenco Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Un Doing Flamenco books, Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2018 im Fachbereich Kulturwissenschaften - Empirische Kulturwissenschaften, Note: 1,7, Eberhard-Karls-Universität Tübingen (Ludwig-Uhland-Insitut für Empirische Kulturwissenschaft), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Emotionen begegnen uns im Alltag überall – wenn wir etwas hören, sehen, riechen, schmecken und ertasten, kommen sie unbewusst oder bewusst in jeder sozialen Praktik auf. Obgleich wir Emotionen individuell erfahren, dienen sie doch vielmehr als Tausch und Austausch in unserer Beziehung zu Menschen und realen oder imaginierten Dingen. Daraus resultiert, wie wir unser Selbst, Andere und die Welt wahrnehmen und wie wir in bestimmten Situationen agieren. Um das Wechselspiel zwischen "doing emotions" und "undoing emotions" zu erschließen, wird hier der Tanz als Forschungsfeld herangezogen. Es ist speziell der Flamencotanz, auf den diese Ausarbeitung ihr Augenmerk legen wird. Im Flamenco stellt die Emotionalität einen wesentlichen Bestandteil dar. So wird von Flamencolog/innen gar beschrieben, dass die "comunión de emociones" (deutsch: "Gemeinschaft der Emotionen") zwischen Aufführenden und Zuhörenden das entscheidende Gut dieses kulturellen Phänomens sei. Die Untersuchung wird sich nun weniger mit dem Diskurs auseinandersetzen, ob es einen wahren oder echten Flamenco (flamenco puro) gibt. Eher beschäftigt sie sich mit der Frage, wie beteiligte Akteur/innen in Deutschland mit den emotionalen Praktiken im Flamencotanz umgehen.

Religious Emotions

by Willem Lemmens, Religious Emotions Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Religious Emotions books, In recent decades contemporary Anglo-American philosophy has seen a boom in publications on the subject of 'the emotions'. Most publications focus on the cognitive value of emotions and on their moral significance. The role which emotions play in religion, however, has sofar received little attention. In this volume a number of scholars present their research on 'religious emotions'. Is there a category of 'religious emotions'? What is so distinctive about them? Was there really a Christian-inspired repression of the emotions? Or did Christianity also made use of the human emotional potential? How is the relation between religion and emotions conditioned by the process of secularisation? How and why did a shift from the concept of 'passion' to that of 'emotion' occur from the eighteenth century on? This collection includes systematical treatments as well as historical approaches of these issues. The last part gives some paradigmatical cases of religious emotions, like emptiness and oceanic feeling. In the study of what constitutes a human being neither religion nor emotion can be neglected. The reader is invited to reflect on their interaction.
