Descrição do produto
When you feel anxious, angry, happy or surprised, what’s really going on inside you?
‘Fascinating . . . a thought-provoking journey into emotion science’ Wall Street Journal
Pioneering psychologist and neuroscientist Lisa Feldman Barrett draws on the latest scientific evidence to reveal a radical truth – that emotions aren’t universally pre-programmed in our brain and bodies, as common sense tells us. Shockingly, they are unique experiences and formed out of our individual environment and personal history. From lust to anger, relationships, health, parenting and even national security, How Emotions Are Made finally explains why this matters and what it means for what you feel and why you feel it.
‘Most of us make our way through the world without thinking a lot about what we bring to our encounters with it. Lisa Feldman Barrett does – and what she has to say about our perceptions and emotions is pretty mind-blowing’ Elle
‘A brilliant and original book on the science of emotions’ Daniel Gilbert, author of the bestseller Stumbling on Happiness
‘Meticulous, well-researched and deeply thought out . . . For anyone who has struggled to reconcile brain and heart, this book will be a treasure; it explains the science without short-changing the humanism of its topic’ Andrew Solomon, bestselling author of Far from the Tree and The Noonday Demon--Este texto se refere à uma edição alternativa kindle_edition
When you feel anxious, angry, happy, or surprised, what’s really going on inside you?
Many scientists believe that emotions come from specific parts of the brain, triggered by the world around us. The thrill of seeing an old friend, the fear of losing someone we love – each of these sensations seems to arise automatically and uncontrollably within us, finding expression on our faces and in our behaviour, carrying us away with the experience.
This understanding of emotion has been around since Plato. But what if it’s wrong? In How Emotions Are Made, pioneering psychologist and neuroscientist Lisa Feldman Barrett draws on the latest scientific evidence to reveal that our common sense ideas about emotion are dramatically, even dangerously, out of date – and that we have been paying the price. Emotions aren’t universally pre-programmed in our brains and bodies; rather, they are psychological experiences that each of us constructs based on our unique personal history, physiology and environment.
This new view of emotions has serious implications: when judges issue lesser sentences for crimes of passion, or when doctors choose between one diagnosis and another, they’re all, in some way, relying on the ancient assumption that emotions are hard-wired into our brains and bodies. Turning this conception of emotion on its head isn’t just good science, Barrett shows; it’s vital to our well-being and the future health of society itself.--Este texto se refere à uma edição alternativa kindle_edition

O livro destrói vários mitos porém cria algo ainda maior sobre a importância do entendimento contextualizado das emoções. Discute implicações pessoais e sociais das descobertas mais atuais. Imperdível.

For her, there is no reaction, no sensory channel reception, no awareness of sensory input. Everything is prediction, even an unexpected smell. It takes her to page 64 to accept less minded sensory input reception processes, and such acknowledgement bears almost no echo in her writings. She denies cause effect and fails to see that she is putting the prediction and the mind as the cause (of everything). This is the new descartian generation of Western intellectuals with little experiential sensorial training. For me, it is sort of a stretch to see sensory reception (which of course involves the nervous system, and may be tainted eventually by simulation and 'illusion') as prediction, and self-awareness as prediction.
In brief, her brain is, as she says, locked in her skull. My brain is a sensorial organism permanently in inter-relation with everything else, being changed and changing.
(on the upside, despite her bias and her crusade against Ekman tainting her reasoning, she is well acquainted with the literature)
Definitely not a one time read and then put it aside. If you are interested in this topic, then in my view, this is one of the best books available and for that reason I would wholeheartedly recommend it.
The author fearlessly challenges some of the fields (affective psychology/neuroscience) most revered and respected theorists and researchers, including Jack Panksap, Antonio Damassio, Joseph LeDoux, Paul Ekman and even Charles Darwin.
That's mad ballsy.
The book is a virtual slaughterhouse of sacred cows.
I have reservations about much of the authors assertions. It's hard not to, because she challenges so much of the current gospel.
That being said, I have the strong intuition that the this work represents a legitimate challenge to the old paradigm.
It will be interesting to read the inevitable pushback.
But, we’ll probably throw this one on the “scrap-head-of-wild-scientific-ideas-that-came-and-went” in a few years time, along with all the other thoughts that currently suit the zeitgeist.
