Explanation of the Book:

Shame is one of our most central feelings and a universal human characteristic. Why do we experience it? For what purpose? How can we cope with excessive feelings of shame? In this elegant exposition informed by many years of helping people to understand feelings of shame, leading Jungian analyst Mario Jacoby provided a comprehensive exploration of the many aspects of shame and showed how it occupies a central place in our emotional experience. Jacoby demonstrated that a lack of self-esteem is often at the root of excessive shame, and as well as providing practical examples of how therapy can help, he drew upon a wealth of historical and cultural scholarship to show how important shame is for us in both its individual and social aspects. This Classic Edition includes a new foreword by Marco Della Chiesa.

Explanation of the Book:

Do people fully understand and appreciate the pain caused by being shamed and the deepening pain followed by blame? My personal experience, 40 years in practice and general understanding of society, tells me that few people do. Oftentimes, neither the person shamed nor those living with such people are aware of the painful cycle and its impact on their lives. For the person caught up in this cycle it is just a sense of emptiness, unworthiness and just not being good enough. The observer, on the other hand, is only aware of negative behaviour, which is more often than not judged harshly. This is the story of two people who have journeyed through this experience: One with a seemingly successful life as a doctor and the other’ who struggled with drug-addiction, both caught up in the cycle of shame, blame and pain. The author also shares their continuing journey of rising above and living beyond this experience, hoping to help others recognise, understand and break free of this cycle.

Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Shame is bad. Too often it cripples and silences victims of other people's shameful behavior, and research has demonstrated clearly the damaging effects of shame on our emotional wellbeing. In recent years a mini-industry of bestselling books, TED Talks, and popular therapies has emerged to free people from deleterious shame. And yet, a place for shame remains. Some behavior is shameful, and sometimes we ought to be ashamed by wrongs we've committed. Eastern and Western cultures alike have long seen a social benefit to shame, and it can rightly cultivate virtues both public and personal. So what are we to make of shame? In For Shame, philosopher and author Gregg Ten Elshof examines this potent emotion carefully, distinguishing between it, embarrassment, and guilt and carefully tracing the positive role shame has played historically in contributing to a well-ordered society. While casting off unhealthy shame is always a positive, Ten Elshof demonstrates the surprising, sometimes unacknowledged ways in which healthy shame is as needed as ever. On the other side of good shame, he argues, lie virtues such as decency, self-respect, and dignity--virtues we desire but may not realize shame can grant. So perhaps shame is good--or better put, a certain kind of shame can yield unexpectedly good gifts.

Scripting Shame in African Literature

Scripting Shame in African Literature
Author: Stephen L. Bishop
Pages: 329
ISBN: 9781800345492
Available:
Release: 2021-04-01
Editor: Oxford University Press
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Shame is one of the most frequent underlying emotions expressed throughout sub-Saharan African literature, yet studies of such literature almost universally ignore the topic in favour of a focus on the struggle for independence and the postcolonial situation, encompassing a search for individual, national, and ethnic identities and questions of corruption, changing gender roles, and conflicts between so-called tradition and modernity. Shame, however, is not antithetical to these investigations and, in fact, the persistent trope of shame undergirds many of them. This book locates these expressions of shame in sub-Saharan African literature and shows how its diverse literary representations underscore shame's function as a fulcrum in the mutual constitution of subject and community on the continent. Though shame research is dominated by Western definitions and theories, this study emphasizes the centrality of African conceptions of shame in ways that notions of Western subjectivity dismiss or cannot capture.

Pages: 496
ISBN: 9780393352122
Available:
Release: 1994-03-17
Editor: W. W. Norton & Company
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

This is a revolutionary book about the nature of emotion, about the way emotions are triggered in our private moments, in our relations with others, and by our biology. Drawing on every theme of the modern life sciences, Donald Nathanson shows how nine basic affects—interest-excitement, enjoyment-joy, surprise-startle, fear-terror, distress-anguish, anger-rage, dissmell, disgust, and shame-humiliation—not only determine how we feel but shape our very sense of self. For too long those who explain emotional discomfort on the basis of lived experience and those who blame chemistry have been at loggerheads. As Dr. Nathanson shows, chemicals and illnesses can affect our mood just as surely as an uncomfortable memory or a stern rebuke. Linking for the first time the affect theory of the pioneering researcher Silvan S. Thomkins with the entire world of biology, medicine, psychology, psychotherapy, religion, and the social sciences, Dr. Nathanson presents a completely new understanding of all emotion.

Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Each woman named in Matthew's record of the genealogy of Jesus made a journey from shame to glory. Grandmothers of Jesus included a prostitute, an adulterer, a nomad, and a trickster. His mother became pregnant before marriage. Certainly, Jesus heard the stories of his ancestors and utilized their life lessons as he made his way to the cross. For in spite of the laws and mores of their culture, these women displayed qualities of vision, risk, courage, truthfulness, and openness to God's gifts-all qualities Jesus would rely on in his own journey from shame to glory. Reverend Valerie Fons and Christian Educator Nancy Regensburger share a unique, compelling, and positive presentation of the five women in the first book of Matthew while highlighting how God acts through the weak and powerless to bring forth glory. Through bible study, history lessons, introspective questions, poignant anecdotes, and opportunities for personal reflection, Fons and Regensburger provide a pathway to glory and inspiration for modern women seeking insight on their own spiritual journeys. From Shame to Glory offers an interpretation of the genealogy of the significant women in the heritage of Jesus Christ that provides bible study group guidance and inspiration for anyone passionate about embracing God's grace and wisdom.

Explanation of the Book:

On the first day of the new Millennium the body of a 97-year-old woman is found strangled and mutilated in her ramshackle house in a remote seaside village in west Cork. The local police are inclined to pin it on a pair of travellers who have set up camp in the neighbourhood, after drug money. McCadden, still new in his job on the all-Ireland murder squad, is not so sure. The viciousness of the attack seems to suggest something much deeper. What has this woman done in her 97 years to inspire such rage? The answer goes back almost to the beginning of the twentieth century.

The Event of Postcolonial Shame

Release: 2010-11-22
Editor: Princeton University Press
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

In a postcolonial world, where structures of power, hierarchy, and domination operate on a global scale, writers face an ethical and aesthetic dilemma: How to write without contributing to the inscription of inequality? How to process the colonial past without reverting to a pathology of self-disgust? Can literature ever be free of the shame of the postcolonial epoch--ever be truly postcolonial? As disparities of power seem only to be increasing, such questions are more urgent than ever. In this book, Timothy Bewes argues that shame is a dominant temperament in twentieth-century literature, and the key to understanding the ethics and aesthetics of the contemporary world. Drawing on thinkers such as Jean-Paul Sartre, Frantz Fanon, Theodor Adorno, and Gilles Deleuze, Bewes argues that in literature there is an "event" of shame that brings together these ethical and aesthetic tensions. Reading works by J. M. Coetzee, Joseph Conrad, Nadine Gordimer, V. S. Naipaul, Caryl Phillips, Ngugi wa Thiong'o, and Zoë Wicomb, Bewes presents a startling theory: the practices of postcolonial literature depend upon and repeat the same structures of thought and perception that made colonialism possible in the first place. As long as those structures remain in place, literature and critical thinking will remain steeped in shame. Offering a new mode of postcolonial reading, The Event of Postcolonial Shame demands a literature and a criticism that acknowledge their own ethical deficiency without seeking absolution from it.

Explanation of the Book:

I was born with a musical gift, to become a child prodigy by the age of three, but that gift was not allowed proper expression for the first decades of my life. I lived as a Child of Shame, although no one outside my family was aware of the incest and abuse I endured from my father. As a child growing up in a black community, I felt uncomfortable with my peers. Being tall and skinny, cruel boys at school stared and poked fun at me, intensifying my feelings of rejection. I left the sexual abuse at home, only to be subjugated to a different type when I got to school. I hated school! I never knew what a normal adolescent life was like, because at age 13 I was introduced to a hellish lifestyle by my sick-minded father, who wanted nothing from me but my body, mind, and soul, which he corrupted totally. The next three decades of my life involved a series of bad marriages, great physical and mental abuse, and more than one attempt on my life. The only thing that allowed me to survive those awful years was the expression of my musical talent. After three husbands and four children, I was able to take control of my life and destiny, to follow a course of meditation, prayer, and detoxification. I was recently diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, and now hope that my belief in a greater power will allow me to survive this as well.
