Compassion: The Culture and Politics of an Emotion

Forsideomslag
Lauren Gail Berlant
Psychology Press, 2004 - 247 sider
In Compassion, ten scholars draw on literature, psychoanalysis, and social history to provide an archive of cases and genealogies of compassion. Together these essays demonstrate how "being compassionate" is shaped by historical specificity and social training, and how the idea of compassion takes place in scenes that are anxious, volatile, surprising, and even contradictory.
