Compassion: The Culture and Politics of an Emotion

Framsida
Lauren Berlant
Routledge, 14 mars 2014 - 256 sidor
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.
