The emergence of sociological theory by Jonathan H Turner( Book )

63 editions published between 1981 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This scholarly text covers the first one hundred years of sociological theorizing, from 1830-1930, focusing primarily on Comte, Spencer, Marx, Weber, Simmel, Durkheim, and Mead. The text provides an in-depth examination of these early sociological theorists with biographical background, analysis of key works, major influences, critical insights, and also answers the question, "What do these ideas tell us about the basic forces that shape the social world?" Posing this question for each theorist adds a unique perspective to the text and distinguishes it from other sociological theory books. In addition, it also includes material on the enduring models and principles of the theorists' work that continue to inform sociological theory today

On the origins of human emotions : a sociological inquiry into the evolution of human affect by Jonathan H Turner( Book )

13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Language and culture are often seen as unique characteristics of human beings. In this book the author argues that our ability to use a wide array of emotions evolved long before spoken language and, in fact, constituted a preadaptation for the speech and culture that developed among later hominids. Long before humans could speak with words, they communicated their emotional dispositions through body language; and it is the neurological wiring of the brain for these emotional languages that represented the key evolutionary breakthrough for our species."--Jacket

Face to face : toward a sociological theory of interpersonal behavior by Jonathan H Turner( Book )

16 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher Description (unedited publisher data) Drawing on and updating classic sociological theory, and with special reference to the most recent research in evolutionary and neurophysiological theory, this work presents a unified, general theory of what happens when people interact. Despite modern technologies that mediate communication among individuals, face-to-face interaction is still primary. This book argues against recent social theory that postulates a dramatic change in the nature of human relationships under postmodernity and asserts that, despite undeniable and accelerating change in people's environments, certain basic human tendencies toward emotionally inflected, physically present social interaction remain strong. Turner builds on first principles he locates in the work of Mead, Freud, Schutz, Durkheim, and Goffman. After brief overviews of previous work on the embeddedness of social interaction in sociocultural systems and in human biology, each chapter presents elements of the microdynamics involved in encounters: emotions, motivations (transactional needs), culture (normative conventions), role processes, status, demographics, and ecology.

Human emotions : a sociological theory by Jonathan H Turner( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Humans are the most emotional animals on earth. Almost every aspect of human cognition, behavior, and social organization is driven by emotions. Emotions are the force behind social commitments to others in face-to-face interactions and groups. But they are much more; they are also the driving force responsible for the formation of social structures, and conversely, they are fuel driving collective actions that tear down social structures and transform cultures. Because emotions are so central to human affairs, it should be possible to develop a general theory explaining why particular emotions are aroused in individuals and groups of individuals, with particular attention to the consequences of emotions for social relations and larger sociocultural patterns in societies. As a general theory diverse manifestations of emotions can be explained; emotions drive, for example, the friendships that people develop with each other, the commitments they make to social structures, or the acts of terrorism that are designed to strike collective fear. There is a common set of forces that can be theorized and, hence, that can explain all dimensions of emotions in human affairs. The goal of Human Emotions is to begin the process of developing a general theory that can be tested with data from diverse sources, ranging from the experimental laboratory through case studies in natural settings to historical accounts of how emotions affect key historical events. This book is essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students researching sociology of emotions, social psychology, and contemporary social theory and is also relevant for students and researchers working in the fields of psychology and cultural studies. -- from back cover

Theory and research on human emotions by Jonathan H Turner( Book )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The papers in this volume represent a broad array of approaches to the analysis of emotions. Some come from well established traditions in social psychology and micro sociology - traditions such as symbolic interaction, expectation states research, interaction ritual theory, and power-status theory. Others come from more macro-oriented theorizing in Europe; another set comes from meso-level analysis of organizational structures; and still others come from the opposite end of the intellectual continuum and explore the physiology and evolution of emotions. The goal of the volume is to sample the range of work in an area that did not exist there decades ago in sociology and to see the theoretical and research programs that sociological theorists and researchers on emotions are pursuing. The sociology of emotions is now a broad-based intellectual movement, with the result that no one volume can fully capture the diversity of work being performed by sociologists. Still, this volume attempts to provide readers with a review of some of the more creative work on emotional dynamics in human groupings."--Jacket
