[Xmca-l] Re: New Book on Brain-Friendly Assessments is Here!



Thanks for that abstract, Greg. Very helpful and immediately relevant to
work Martin and I are engaged in. Here is the link to a bunch of her papers
for those of you following these issues.

http://www-bcf.usc.edu/~immordin/

Notice the causal sequence in the following topic sentence of the abstract:
 "Social emotions shape how we act, who we become, and how we experience
our own lives."

I managed to perezhit the assumptions in that sentence, but wonder how
others perezhil-ed
it.

Mike

(For the totally baffled, there is a lot of discussion going on around the
Russian concept of
perezhivanie, cognition/affect relationships, and such. My question is a
serious one. In what senses and under what conditions (two ways of saying
the same thing?) can we say that social emotions are causes?)
 (Perezhivanie is a super candidate for what is referred to as a social
emotion).
