Gratitude, like other positive emotions, has inspired many theological and philosophical writings, but it has inspired very little vigorous, empirical research. In an effort to remedy this oversight, this volume brings together prominent scientists from various disciplines to examine what has become known as the most-neglected emotion. The volume begins with the historical, philosophical, and theoretical foundations of gratitude, then presents the current research perspectives from social, personality, and developmental psychology, as well as from primatology, anthropology, and biology. The volume also includes a comprehensive, annotated bibliography of research on gratitude. This work contributes a great deal to the growing positive psychology initiative and to the scientific investigation of positive human emotions. It will be an invaluable resource for researchers and students in social, personality, and developmental, clinical, and health psychology, as well as to sociologists and cultural anthropologists.

Dieses Sachbuch entdeckt das Phänomen der Dankbarkeit aus Sicht der positiven Psychologie – als Kraftquelle für unsere psychische Gesundheit und ein erfülltes Leben! Denn die Emotionsforschung hat in den vergangenen Jahren den Befund hervorgebracht: Nichts tut unserer seelischen Gesundheit so gut wie das nachhaltige Gefühl ehrlicher Dankbarkeit! Das Buch zeigt, was Dankbarkeit ist, woraus sie ihre Kraft schöpft und wie es gelingen kann, sie zu erlernen. Weil der Autor in den Disziplinen Psychologie, Philosophie und Theologie zu Hause und als Trainer und Coach tätig ist, erschließt sich dem Leser das Geheimnis der Dankbarkeit mehrdimensional, tiefgründig, aber auch praxisnah. Entdecken Sie die Kraftquelle dieser wunderbaren Emotion, deren große Bedeutung für die Gesundheit von Gesellschaft und Individuum schon seit Menschengedenken bekannt ist, aber erst durch die Trendwende der positiven Psychologie auch ernsthaftes wissenschaftliches Interesse erhalten hat.

Integrating the latest teachings from social science with stories, prayers, and practices from cultures and traditions spanning the globe, she presents a 12-month plan for making gratitude your foundation for daily living. Opening with themes such as “Beginning Anew” and “The Power of Equanimity” and progressing to “Letting Be and Letting Go,” “The Mystic Heart,” and more, readers will steep themselves in “the parent of all virtues,” exploring:?- How to overcome habitual tendencies toward envy, comparison, and narcissism;?- Blessings, learnings, mercies, and protections---the four portals to the grateful heart, and how to cultivate these key entryways in our work, relationships, health, finances, and personal growth;?- Journaling and reflection exercises, perennial and indigenous wisdoms, and universal practices for every season and situation. “The practice of gratitude bestows many benefits,” writes Angeles Arrien. “Anger, arrogance, and jealousy melt in its embrace. Fear and defensiveness dissolve. Gratitude diminishes barriers to love and evokes happiness, keeping alive what has meaning for us.” Living in Gratitude, is a dependable resource for making this cherished virtue your guiding light along life’s journey.

Then I read Living in Gratitude. Angeles takes the practice of thankfulness to a whole new level. Month by month, she guides us with questions and reflections to use gratefulness to grow spiritually in work, finances, health, and relationships. I give thank to her and to this book.” —M.J.

Please allow this heart food to feed you at the deepest levels of your being. This is more than a book—it is a manual for living a life that you love and that matters, a life of savoring and serving, a life or inter-communication and grace. Please, let yourself be fed.” —Jennifer Louden, author of The Woman’s Comfort Book and The Life Organizer “Angeles Arrien is one of the most gifted and generous teachers of our time.

Few areas have witnessed the type of growth we have seen in the affective sciences in the past decades. Across psychology, philosophy, economics, and neuroscience, there has been an explosion of interest in the topic of emotion and affect. Comprehensive, authoritative, up-to-date, and easy-to-use, the new Oxford Companion to Emotion and the Affective Sciences is an indispensable resource for all who wish to find out about theories, concepts, methods, and research findings in this rapidly growing interdisciplinary field - one that brings together, amongst others, psychologists, neuroscientists, social scientists, philosophers, and historians. Organized by alphabetical entries, and presenting brief definitions, concise overviews, and encyclopaedic articles (all with extensive references to relevant publications), this Companion lends itself to casual browsing by non-specialists interested in the fascinating phenomena of emotions, moods, affect disorders, and personality as well as to focused search for pertinent information by students and established scholars in the field. Not only does the book provide entries on affective phenomena, but also on their neural underpinnings, their cognitive antecedents and the associated responses in physiological systems, facial, vocal, and bodily expressions, and action tendencies. Numerous entries also consider the role of emotion in society and social behavior, as well as in cognitive processes such as those critical for perception, attention, memory, judgement and decision-making. The volume has been edited by a group of internationally leading authorities in the respective disciplines consisting of two editors (David Sander and Klaus Scherer) as well as group of 11 associate editors (John T. Cacioppo, Tim Dalgleish, Robert Dantzer, Richard J. Davidson, Ronald B. de Sousa, Phoebe C. Ellsworth, Nico Frijda, George Loewenstein, Paula M. Niedenthal, Peter Salovey, and Richard A. Shweder). The members of the editorial board have commissioned and reviewed contributions from major experts on specific topics. In addition to comprehensive coverage of technical terms and fundamental issues, the volume also highlights current debates that inform the ongoing research process. In addition, the Companion contains a wealth of material on the role of emotion in applied domains such as economic behaviour, music and arts, work and organizational behaviour, family interactions and group dynamics, religion, law and justice, and societal change. Highly accessible and wide-ranging, this book is a vital resource for scientists, students, and professionals eager to obtain a rapid, conclusive overview on central terms and topics and anyone wanting to learn more about the mechanisms underlying the emotions dominating many aspects of our lives.

Macht haben, Mensch bleiben Es sind nicht die Ellenbogen, es ist unser Gemeinsinn, der uns Macht verleiht. Doch sobald wir Macht haben und ihren Verführungen erliegen, geht uns die soziale Kompetenz schnell wieder verloren. Wir alle sind Opfer dieses Macht-Paradoxes, sagt der renommierte Psychologe Dacher Keltner. In seinem neuen Buch zeigt er, dass Macht und auch Machtmissbrauch in jedem Winkel unseres sozialen Lebens vorkommen: - In der Arbeitswelt, - in der Familie, - innerhalb von Freundschaften und gesellschaftlichen Gruppen. Macht bestimmt das Leben aller Menschen. Und erst wenn wir einen Blick durch die Brille der Macht werfen, lässt sich dieses Paradox auflösen. Damit die Guten nicht nur an die Macht kommen, sondern empathisch bleiben und sie behalten. Keltners Buch ist eine revolutionäre neue positive Psychologie der Macht. Einer der bedeutendsten Psychologen Amerikas inspiriert uns dazu, auf eine neue Weise über Macht nachzudenken. Sein Buch hilft uns, uns selbst zu verstehen. "Dacher Keltner verändert die Vorstellungen darüber, wie Macht und wie Ungleichheit funktionieren. Es ist nur eine Frage der Zeit, bis seine Ideen sich überall verbreiten. Und im Gegensatz zu anderen Psychologen, die ich kenne, ist er kein Spinner." Michael Lewis, Autor von "The Big Short"

Although collective emotions have a long tradition in scientific inquiry, for instance in mass psychology and the sociology of rituals and social movements, their importance for individuals and the social world has never been more obvious than in the past decades. The Arab Spring revolution, the Occupy Wall Street movement, and mass gatherings at music festivals or mega sports events clearly show the impact collective emotions have both in terms of driving conflict and in uniting people. But these examples only show the most obvious and evident forms of collective emotions. Others are more subtle, although less important: shared moods, emotional atmospheres, and intergroup emotions are part and parcel of our social life. Although these phenomena go hand in hand with any formation of sociality, they are little understood. Moreover, there still is a large gap in our understanding of individual emotions on the one hand and collective emotional phenomena on the other hand. This book presents a comprehensive overview of contemporary theories and research on collective emotions. It spans several disciplines and brings together, for the first time, various strands of inquiry and up-to-date research in the study of collective emotions and related phenomena. In focusing on conceptual, theoretical, and methodological issues in collective emotion research, the volume narrows the gap between the wealth of studies on individual emotions and inquiries into collective emotions. The book catches up with a renewed interest into the collective dimensions of emotions and their close relatives, for example emotional climates, atmospheres, communities, and intergroup emotions. This interest is propelled by a more general increase in research on the social and interpersonal aspects of emotion on the one hand, and by trends in philosophy and cognitive science towards refined conceptual analyses of collective entities and the collective properties of cognition on the other hand. The book includes sections on: Conceptual Perspectives; Collective Emotion in Face-to-Face Interactions; The Social-Relational Dimension of Collective Emotion; The Social Consequences of Collective Emotions; Group-Based and Intergroup Emotion; Rituals, Movements, and Social Organization; and Collective Emotions in Online Social Systems. Including contributions from psychologists, philosophers, sociologists, and neuroscience, this volume is a unique and valuable contribution to the affective sciences literature.

Anleitung zum Glücklichsein Für unser Glücksempfinden ist zu 50 Prozent unsere Grundeinstellung verantwortlich, zu zehn Prozent sind es die Lebensumstände und zu erstaunlichen 40 Prozent können wir selbst aktiv Einfluss darauf nehmen. Zu dieser Erkenntnis kommt die renommierte amerikanische Psychologin Sonja Lyubomirsky in ihrem hier frisch überarbeiteten Standardwerk. Im Zentrum steht dabei ein wissenschaftlich fundiertes Modell, das uns hilft, aus zwölf Glücksaktivitäten die eigene Glücksstrategie zusammenzustellen. Denn: Glück hat nichts mit dem Glauben an Gurus oder dem Lesen von Kalendersprüchen zu tun. Vielmehr können wir uns bei wissenschaftlichen Fakten bedienen, um dem Glück auf die Sprünge zu helfen! "Wenn Sie eine wissenschaftlich fundierte Anleitung suchen, wie Sie ein glücklicheres Leben führen können, dann ist dies genau das richtige Buch." Martin Seligman, Autor von "Der Glücksfaktor"
