A General Theory of Emotions and Social Life (Routledge by Warren D. TenHouten

By Warren D. TenHouten

Founded upon the psychoevolutionary theories of Darwin, Plutchik and Izard, a normal socioevolutionary conception of the feelings - affect-spectrum conception - classifies a large spectrum of the feelings and analyzes them at the sociological, mental and neurobiological levels.

This neurocognitive sociology of the sentiments supersedes the key theoretical views constructed within the sociology of feelings via exhibiting fundamental feelings to be adaptive reactions to primary difficulties of lifestyles that have advanced into ordinary social relationships and which may are expecting occurrences of the complete spectrum of basic, advanced secondary, and tertiary emotions.

Written via prime social theorist Warren D. TenHouten, this e-book provides an encyclopaedic type of the sentiments, describing forty-six feelings intimately, and featuring a common multilevel idea of feelings and social lifestyles. The scope of insurance of this key paintings is very topical and entire, and comprises the advance of feelings in adolescence, symbolic elaboration of complicated feelings, feelings administration, violence, and cultural and gender alterations. whereas fundamental feelings have essentially outlined valences, this thought indicates that complicated feelings obey no algebraic legislations and that each one feelings have either inventive and harmful potentialities.
