Subject: RE: the psychology of dissent
Can anyone tell me what exactly are those small range of distinct emotional feelings?
Fear is obviously one; anger; I have heard that shame is in common with the animals; joy.
Can people help me with this one?
Thomas J. Scheff of UC Santa Barbara has written books on the Sociology of Emotions. He and her wife see shame as a basic emotion that is the base for violence at interpersonal and in inter-group levels.
