Descripción del producto


this introductory volume will be difficult to surpass (Times Literary Supplement)

This book throws a lifeline to anyone trying to navigate the present high tide of multidisciplinary material on the emotions ... both scholarly and enjoyable. (Jane O'Grady, Times Higher Education, 'What Are You Reading?')

Plamper clears the way for others to approach the history of emotions by mapping the multidisciplinary intellectual architecture that has supplied us with a nature/culture dualism in contemporary understandings of what emotions are and where they come from ... Plamper is at his best, cutting a swathe through disciplines where other historians might fear to tread. (Rob Boddice, Reviews in History)

excellent and thought-provoking ... This is an indispensible text for anyone interested in this fast developing new subdiscipline of cultural history, and provides a refreshing perspective on emotions which are the everyday focus of so much work in mental health. As clinicians we are often less aware of the sociocultural aspects of this work than we might be, and perhaps also take the assertions of our neuroscience colleagues on faith rather too readily. That a historian can provide such an informed and thought-provoking account of contemporary approaches to emotions is salutary. (Stirling Moorey, Journal of Mental Health)

dazzling ... [Plamper] is a natural storyteller, and has a beautifully smooth writing style (thanks must also go to his translator) that makes the book accessible to readers at all levels ... his book will prompt intellectual exchanges for years to come. (Joanna Bourke, Social History)

the book as a whole provides an admirable introduction to the virtues of thinking historically about emotions ― not just thinking about emotions in history ... the book serves as a splendid guide to further reading. (Professor William M. Reddy, The History of Emotions Blog)

Plamper offers a road map for bridging the gap between and potentially reconciling social constructivists and essentialists working on human emotions ... Essential. (T. L. Loos, CHOICE)

a most welcome history and genealogy of an extremely diverse field (Stephanie Trigg, Australian Book Review)

For readers interested in the mid-nineteenth- and twentieth-century origins of the study of emotion in the emerging academic fields of anthropology, psychology, biology, and history, the book provides detailed summaries and commentaries on 150 years of research. (Nicole Eustace, American Historical Review)

Plamper's book sets out to provide an introduction to past and current research in the field. This is an ambitious aim, but one in which Plamper succeeds admirably, providing lucid and stimulating distillations of key work and debates ... anyone looking for a readable and engaging introduction to this fascinating field would do well to read Plamper's stimulating survey. (Catriona Kennedy, History Today)

Reseña del editor

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.
