The History of Emotions

An Introduction

Jan Plamper

Emotions in History

  • The first book-length introduction to one of the fastest-growing fields of historical discipline
  • Offers a synthesis of the work already carried out in the field and an agenda for the direction of future study
  • Provides a multidisciplinary approach, engaging with anthropology, philosophy, sociology, linguistics, art history, political science, psychology, and the latest affective neuroscience
  • Shows how genuine collaboration between history and neuroscience might be possible and thus moves beyond the binary debate between social constructionism and universalism
