Handbook of affective sciences by Richard J Davidson( )

27 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 2,131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scientists have recently made considerable advances in understanding how brain processes shape emotions and are changed by human emotion. There have also been major methodological advances in objectively measuring different parameters of emotion, ranging from expressive behavior to physiology to subjective experience using experience sampling. Drawing on a wide range of research and methods of inquiry--neuroimaging techniques, neuropsychological assessment, clinical research, and laboratory paradigms designed to assess the cognitive and social constituents of emotion--scientists are beginning to understand the many factors that shape emotion and the range of functions that are affected by emotion. As a result, researchers are gaining insight into such compelling questions as show people experience life emotionally, why people respond differently to the same experiences, and what the face can tell us about internal states, how emotion in significant social relationships influences health, and whether there are basic emotions common to all humans. This book brings together scholars in the area of affective science, who lay out, in 59 chapters, the latest research and theories in the field

The emotional power of music : multidisciplinary perspectives on musical arousal, expression, and social control by Tom Cochrane( )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How can an abstract sequence of sounds so intensely express emotional states? How does music elicit or arouse our emotions? What happens at the physiological and neural level when we listen to music? How do composers and performers practically manage the expressive powers of music? How have societies sought to harness the powers of music for social or therapeutic purposes? In the past ten years, research into the topic of music and emotion has flourished. In addition, the relationship between the two has become of interest to a broad range of disciplines in both the sciences and humanities. The Emotional Power of Music is a multidisciplinary volume exploring the relationship between music and emotion. Bringing together contributions from psychologists, neuroscientists, musicologists, musicians, and philosophers, the volume presents both theoretical perspectives and in-depth explorations of particular musical works, as well as first-hand reports from music performers and composers"--Back cover

Components of emotional meaning : a sourcebook by Johnny J. R Fontaine( )

15 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Publications on emotion (and the affective sciences in general) have exploded in the last decade. Numerous research teams and individual scholars from many different disciplines have published research papers or books about many different aspects of emotions and their role in behaviour and society. However, one aspect of emotional research that has been somewhat neglected, is the way in which emotional terms translate into other languages. When using terms like anger, sadness, fear, disgust, and joy for so-called basic emotions, as well as terms like shame, guilt, pride, regret and contempt for more complex emotions, it is naturally assumed that the emotion terms used for research in the native language of the researchers and translated into English are completely equivalent in meaning. However, this is not generally the case. In many cases there is no direct one to one relationship between an English term and a term in an alternative language. In fact, there can be significant differences in the way that these seemingly similar emotional terms can be applied across various languages, with important implications for how we review and appraise this work."--Publisher's website

Justice : interdisciplinary perspectives( Book )

15 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Klaus Scherer brings together leading scholars from the social sciences to discuss recent theoretical and empirical studies of justice. They examine the nature of justice from the current perspectives of philosophy, economics, law, sociology and psychology, and explore possible lines of convergence. A critical examination of theories of justice from Plato and Aristotle, through Marx, to Rawls and Habermas heads a collection which addresses the role of justice in economics and the law and which evaluates contemporary sociological and psychological stances in relation to justice distributive and procedural. All the material is of clear cross-disciplinary interest; and this broad and authoritative survey of current thinking on the topic will appeal to all researchers in the area, whatever their background, as well as to those confronting issues of justice in law, politics and business

Blueprint for affective computing : a sourcebook( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Affective computing' is a branch of computing concerned with the theory and construction of machines which can detect, respond to, and simulate human emotional states. It is an interdisciplinary field spanning the computer sciences, psychology, and cognitive science. Affective computing is a rapidly developing field within industry and science. There is now a great drive to make technologies such as robotic systems, avatars in service-related human computer interaction, e-learning, game characters, or companion devices more marketable by endowing the 'soulless' robots or agents with the ability to recognize and adjust to the user's feelings as well as to be able to communicate appropriate emotional signals. A Blueprint for Affective Computing: A sourcebook and manual is the very first attempt to ground affective computing within the disciplines of psychology, affective neuroscience, and philosophy. This book illustrates the contributions of each of these disciplines to the development of the ever-growing field of affective computing. In addition, it demonstrates practical examples of cross-fertilization between disciplines in order to highlight the need for integration of computer science, engineering and the affective sciences. Focusing on a topic at the frontiers of human computer interaction research, this book will be of great interest to students and researchers in psychology, neuroscience, computational neuroscience, computer science, and artificial intelligence"--
