The history of emotions is one of the fastest growing fields in current historical debate, and this is the first book-length introduction to the field, synthesizing the current research, and offering direction for future study. The History of Emotions is organized around the debate between social constructivist and universalist theories of emotion that has shaped most emotions research in a variety of disciplines for more than a hundred years: social constructivists believe that emotions are largely learned and subject to historical change, while universalists insist on the timelessness and pan-culturalism of emotions. In historicizing and problematizing this binary, Jan Plamper opens emotions research beyond constructivism and universalism; he also maps a vast terrain of thought about feelings in anthropology, philosophy, sociology, linguistics, art history, political science, the life sciences; from nineteenth-century experimental psychology to the latest affective neuroscience; and history, from ancient times to the present day.

In this 'Very Short Introduction', Rob Boddice explores the history, culture, and medical science of pain. Charting the shifting meanings of pain across time and place, he focusses on how the experience and treatment of pain have changed. He describes historical hierarchies of pain experience that related pain to social class and race, and the privileging of human states of pain over that of other animals. From the pain concepts of classical antiquity to expressions of pain in contemporary art, and modern medical approaches to the understanding, treatment, and management of pain, Boddice weaves a multifaceted account of this central human experience. Ranging from neuroscientific innovations in experimental medicine to the constructionist arguments of social scientists, pain is shown to resist a timeless definition. Pain is physical and emotional, of body and mind, and is always experienced subjectively and contextually.

Affective And Emotional Economies In Medieval And Early Modern Europe

This book analyzes how acts of feeling at a discursive, somatic, and rhetorical level were theorized and practiced in multiple medieval and early-modern sources (literary, medical, theological, and archival). It covers a large chronological and geographical span from eleventh-century France, to fifteenth-century Iberia and England, and ending with seventeenth-century Jesuit meditative literature. Essays in this book explore how particular emotional norms belonging to different socio-cultural communities (courtly, academic, urban elites) were subverted or re-shaped; engage with the study of emotions as sudden, but impactful, bursts of sensory experience and feelings; and analyze how emotions are filtered and negotiated through the prism of literary texts and the socio-political status of their authors.

Everyone knows what is feels like to be in pain. Scraped knees, toothaches, migraines, giving birth, cancer, heart attacks, and heartaches: pain permeates our entire lives. We also witness other people - loved ones - suffering, and we 'feel with' them. It is easy to assume this is the end of the story: 'pain-is-pain-is-pain', and that is all there is to say. But it is not. In fact, the way in which people respond to what they describe as 'painful' has changed considerably over time. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, for example, people believed that pain served a specific (and positive) function - it was a message from God or Nature; it would perfect the spirit. 'Suffer in this life and you wouldn't suffer in the next one'. Submission to pain was required. Nothing could be more removed from twentieth and twenty-first century understandings, where pain is regarded as an unremitting evil to be 'fought'. Focusing on the English-speaking world, this book tells the story of pain since the eighteenth century, addressing fundamental questions about the experience and nature of suffering over the last three centuries. How have those in pain interpreted their suffering - and how have these interpretations changed over time? How have people learnt to conduct themselves when suffering? How do friends and family react? And what about medical professionals: should they immerse themselves in the suffering person or is the best response a kind of professional detachment? As Joanna Bourke shows in this fascinating investigation, people have come up with many different answers to these questions over time. And a history of pain can tell us a great deal about how we might respond to our own suffering in the present - and, just as importantly, to the suffering of those around us.

Warum fühlen wir uns so selten glücklich, wo es doch an klugen Rezepten zum Glücklichsein nicht mangelt? Der Philosoph Michael Hampe fordert in diesem Meisterstück erzählender Philosophie zu einem Gedankenexperiment auf. In vier von verschiedenen Traditionen inspirierten Essays entwickelt er Vorschläge, wie das Ziel des vollkommenen Lebens erreicht werden könnte: allein durch Verstand oder durch Spiritualität, durch skeptische Distanz zur Welt oder durch die Harmonie zwischen Menschen und Dingen. Vollkommenes Glück, vermutet Hampe, kann letztlich nur in einem Leben liegen, das sich von Doktrinen befreit hat und sich deshalb der Betrachtung der Welt überlässt.

Vor mehr als zwanzig Jahren fiel der Eiserne Vorhang, und mit ihm verschwand ein Ordnungsmuster, das die Welt in zwei Lager teilte. Doch was bleibt von den Strukturen, Praktiken und Institutionen des Kalten Krieges? Welches politische, soziale, militärische und kulturelle Erbe prägt direkt und indirekt die Welt bis in unsere Gegenwart? Das Wechselspiel von Vergangenem und Gegenwärtigem, die Präsenz des Gestern im Heute thematisiert der vorliegende Band - eine Spurensuche in Ost und West und in der "Dritten Welt" auf unterschiedlichen Themenfeldern: Nationaler Sicherheitsstaat, Außen- und Sicherheitspolitik, Gesellschaft, Wirtschaft und Recht, Staatenbildung, Staatsreform und Staatszerfall.

Die Organisation des elementaren Schulunterrichts in Jahrgangsklassen stellt ein umfassendes Ordnungsangebot fur die Bevolkerung moderner Gesellschaften dar. Die allgemeine Durchsetzung dieses Organisationsprinzips wurde haufig als lineare Erfolgsgeschichte prasentiert, bei der sich eine vermeintlich eindeutige technologische Rationalitat in der Systematisierung von unterrichtlichen Interaktionen und Fuhrungstechniken durchgesetzt habe. Eine historisch-vergleichende Untersuchung der Rezeptionsverlaufe des -wechselseitigen- oder -monitorialen- Unterrichts nach Bell und Lancaster zu Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts in Preussen, in den damals danischen Herzogtumern Schleswig und Holstein und in Spanien zeigt jedoch betrachtlich variierende Selektionen und Umdeutungen auf. Unter den Stichworten -Geist- und -Mechanik- werden kulturell distinkte Optionen herausgearbeitet, die bei der Akzeptanz von Technologieangeboten fur das Klassenzimmer historisch wirksam geworden sind."
