About the Author:

KARL G. HEIDER is a Carolina Distinguished Professor of Anthropology Emeritus at the University of South Carolina, USA.

Review:

"For more than a quarter century, Heider has led the way in the study of culture and emotion in Indonesia and Southeast Asia. The Cultural Context of Emotion takes this extraordinary achievement further, offering readers the finest work on culture and emotion in Southeast Asia ever written. This brilliant work is a must-read work for Asianists, students of psychological anthropology, and cultural psychology." - Robert Hefner, Director, Institute on Culture, Religion, and World Affairs, Boston University"Smart, subtle, engaging, and deeply informed, The Cultural Context of Emotion is a remarkable contribution both to our understanding of Minangkabau life and culture and to our sense of new strategies for ethnopsychological research. Heider charts a complex and fascinating emotional landscape with clarity and insight - a truly thought-provoking study." - Don Brenneis, Department of Anthropology, University of California - Santa Cruz "Heider s study of a very different culture's understandings of emotion allows us to recognize nuances and meanings that illuminate the fundamental nature of emotions in our own lives." - Paul Ekman, Emeritus Professor of Psychology, University of California - San Francisco and President, Paul Ekman Group, LLC

Heiders exploration of emotion as understood by the Minangkabau a matrilineal, Moslem society of West Sumatra, Indonesia this book uses semi-structured interviews with focus groups and individuals to allow emotions to lead us into the broader realm of Minangkabau folk psychology. Minangkabau have long been considered the intellectuals of Indonesia, and not surprisingly turn out to be deeply concerned with intelligences, with controlling ones own emotions, and with discerning the emotions of others. This fascinating work solidifies the situation of emotions at the center of investigation as a powerful ethnographic strategy. This item ships from multiple locations.
