Emotions--fleeting, insubstantial, changeable, and ambiguous--seem to defy study and analysis. Nothing is more complex, mysterious, and subject to conflicting theories and interpretations than human emotion. Yet the central importance of emotion in human affairs is undeniable. Emotions affect all levels of life--personal, organizational, political, cultural, economic, and religious. Emotions give meaning to life. Emotional disturbances can destroy that meaning. How should emotions be studied? How can an understanding of the inner feelings of individuals illuminate important social interactions and human developments? In his book, Norman Denzin presents a systematic, in-depth analysis of emotion that combines new theoretical advances with practical applications. Based on an intensive, critical examination of classical and modern theoretical research--and on revealing personal interviews in which ordinary people express their emotional lives--he builds a new framework for understanding ordinary emotions and emotional disturbances. Denzin analyzes how people experience joy and pain, love and hate, anger and despair, friendship and alienation--and examines the personal, psychological, social, and cultural aspects of human emotion to provide new perspectives for understanding human experience and social interactions. He offers new insights on the role of emotions in family violence and recommends ways of helping people escape from recurring patterns of violence. And in criticizing current conceptions of emotionally disturbed people, he reveals the nature of their inner lives and the ways they perceive and relate to others. In sum, this book presents new insights on human relationships and human experience. It is now available in paperback for the first time, with a new introduction by the author.

Emotions are an inescapable part of the human experience. They motivate actions and reactions, guide our interpersonal and business relationships, inspire political and societal trends, and influence our sense of self and well-being. Emphasizing the broad practical reach of this field of study, Understanding Emotions draws from neuroscience, psychiatry, biology, genetics, the humanities, economics, and more to provide a strong foundation in core concepts. An easy-to-follow narrative arc encompasses the entire life span, while representative studies provide immediate insight into the real-world implications of important findings. This new Fourth Edition continues to provide clear and concise guidance toward the factors that drive emotion, with new, revised, and expanded discussions that reflect the current state of the field. Detailed coverage of social and anti-social motivations, moral judgment, empathy, psychological disorders, the physiological components of emotion, and many more equip students with the conceptual tools to probe deeper into the material and apply methods and techniques to their own personal lives.

Understanding Emotions presents eight original essays on the emotions from leading contemporary philosophers in North America and the U.K: Simon Blackburn, Bill Brewer, Peter Goldie, Dan Hutto, Adam Morton, Michael Stocker, Barry Smith, and Finn Spicer. Goldie and Spicer's introductory chapter sets out the key themes of the ensuing chapters: surveying contemporary philosophical thinking about the emotions, and raising challenges to a number of prejudices that are sometimes brought to the topic from elsewhere in the philosophy of mind and moral philosophy. Brewer, Hutto, Goldie and Smith explore the conceptual and epistemological problems of other minds that the emotions raise, and how the emotions can be a source of knowledge of the world around us. The chapters by Stocker, Blackburn and Morton are broadly concerned with issues in morality: Stocker argues for the traditional Aristotelian view that emotions reveal value and are constitutive of value; Blackburn, from a more Augustinian perspective, argues that the virtuous person, like the rest of us, will be emotional but he or she will have the right emotions towards the right objects; Morton questions the idea of emotions and narrative as sources of self-understanding. An extensive bibliography completes the book. Drawing together the arguments of leading contemporary philosophers, focusing on issues in the philosophy of mind, epistemology and moral philosophy, this book offers a wide and deep understanding of the emotions, and will be of interest across the philosophical spectrum to students and researchers of this fascinating and important topic.

As a social work student or practitioner it is essential to be able to understand, recognize and critically reflect on your own emotions and those of others. Consciously or unconsciously, emotions play an integral role in day-to-day decision making, assessments and relationship building, and a lack of emotional awareness and understanding can result in poor practice and a failure to think critically. Practical and engaging, this book encourages you to consider the role of emotions in the light of your own experiences and practice contexts. Key topics include: Understanding what emotions are and how they apply to social work practice Recognizing and reflecting upon the emotional content of practice Incorporating emotions in reflective journals, reports, case notes, critical incident analysis and academic writing Understanding the conscious and unconscious emotions at play in your practice and how these can impact upon the development of positive relationships Enhancing understanding of self and the importance of resilience Understanding the role of emotions in supervision, support and reflection In addition, each chapter includes case studies, to make the link between theory and practice, reflective exercises to encourage the reader to consider the discussion from their own contexts and perspectives. There will also be key learning points to summarise the main ideas presented at the end of each chapter. This is an invaluable book for all social work students and early career practitioners aiming to boost their self-awareness and personal wellbeing, and ultimately improve their practice. "This is a timely publication that reinforces the centrality of emotions and emotional intelligence in social work practice - a must read for all aspiring and practising social workers." Gillian Ruch, Professor of Social Work, School of Education and Social Work, University of Sussex, UK "What Understanding Emotions in Social Work does is cuts across all layers of the social work curriculum and indeed the "resistance and lethargy'' regarding ''the role of emotions within social work practice" that Ingram refers to. It affords us with a medium through which to explore the substance of that which causes us to react and provides us with a space in which to learn more about what it means to respond; both to ourselves and to those we engage with. It is a book for anyone involved in professional social work education and practice; one that will become a well-thumbed addition to the discerning practitioner's library. " Amanda M L Taylor, Senior Lecturer, School of Social Work, University of Central Lancashire, UK "Understanding Emotions in Social Work: Theory, practice and reflection, highlights the importance of emotion in social work practice. Dr Richard Ingram clearly makes the case that the recognition of, reflection upon, responsiveness to, and regulation of emotion, contributes to effective social work practice, as well as, the development of healthy practitioners and practice environments. This book reinforces how social work is primarily a human interactive and relational practice in which emotion and affect have a pivotal role. I highly recommend Understanding Emotions in Social Work as an essential text for students, social workers, supervisors and managers." Associate Professor Kieran O'Donoghue, Head of School of Social Work, Massey University, New Zealand

p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Arial} Post-factual politics has united scientists and civil society in a public defence of truth, however, the battle may already have been lost to a binarity of facts and emotions. Analysing and comparing scientists’ protests against the Trump presidency with famous scientific controversies in modern medicine, this innovative book redefines truth as a negotiation in public discourse between the interplay of values, beliefs and facts. It shows that in order to understand post-factual politics we must unveil emotion’s role in knowledge-making.
