Examines the increasing evidence that emotions are not discrete "hardwired" biological events, but are influenced and shaped through social, cultural, and linguistic processes. By integrating a diversity of scientific approaches, Emotion and Culture goes a long way toward showing that culture penetrates deeply into virtually every component process of emotion: cognitive, linguistic, and even physiological and neurochemical elements.

Contributions from researchers in a wide range of scientific fields make this book an important touchstone of theory and research for the premise that emotion and culture are mutually and reciprocally related.
