Emotiile în viata socialã. Rusinea si vinovãtia în spatiul public postcomunist din România
Emotions in social life. Shame and guilt in the public space in post-communist Romania
Published by: EDITURA POLIROM S.A.
Summary/Abstract: In this article I present some aspects of social life in Romania which support the thesis that emotions are socially determined. I will present theoretical and empirical proofs that shame and guilt are distinct social emotions, organically intertwined. I advance a psychosociological typology of shame and I support the reconceptualization of spiral of silence theory. I also mention the alienation of emotional proletariat in modern societies. Based on the axiom that prior to being sapiens, homo was sentiens and also on the fact that in real time, emotions are primordial, I formulate some suggestions for the future research of social life and action.
