The Emotional Self by Deborah Lupton

The Emotional Self: A Sociocultural Exploration by Deborah Lupton

`This addition to a growing number of texts which approach emotions and emotionality from a social constructionist perspective is well written, scholarly, accessible and interesting…. There is both breadth and depth to this work.’ – Feminism and Psychology

This broad-ranging and accessible book brings together social and cultural
theory with original empirical research into the nature of the emotional self
in contemporary western societies.

The emphasis of the analysis is on the emotional self as a dynamic project
that is continually shaped and reshaped via discourse, embodied sensations,
memory, personal biography and interactions with others and objects. Using an
interdisciplinary approach, Deborah Lupton draws on a number of sociocultural
approaches that adopt a post-structuralist perspective. She strongly
emphasizes language and discourse as they construct and express concepts of
the self and the emotions, whilst also acknowledging the sensual, embodied
and unconscious dimensions of emotional experience.
