Libro: Davies, D. J., Warne, N. A. (2014). Emotions and Religious Dynamics. Ashgate Publishing.

Tutti sentiamo emozioni che ci spingono ad agire.

 Le comunità religiose spesso selezionano e promuovono certe emozioni rispetto ad altre. Se non lo capiamo, è difficile capire il modo in cui i gruppi (religiosi) vedono il mondo e ogni persona. Spesso è il modello emotivo sottostante ad un gruppo piuttosto che le sue dottrine che divide o attira le persone. Questi temi, così importanti nel mondo di oggi, vengono esplorati in questo libro in modo autenticamente interdisciplinare da antropologi, psicologi, teologi e storici della religione, e in alcuni studi dettagliati di tradizioni religiose più e meno note provenienti da tutto il mondo.

We all feel emotions and are moved to action by them. Religious communities often select and foster certain emotions over others. Without understanding this it is hard to grasp the way groups view the world and each other. Often, it is the underlying emotional pattern of a group rather than its doctrines that either divides it from, or attracts it to, others. These issues, so important in today's world, are explored in this book in a genuinely interdisciplinary way by anthropologists, psychologists, theologians and historians of religion, and in some detailed studies of well and less well known religious traditions from across the world.
