Summary
"Emotion, Restraint, and Community in Ancient Rome is an essay in cultural psychology. By examining the ways in which emotions, and talk about emotions, reinforce cultural norms, it aims to understand the interplay between the emotions and the ethics of the Roman upper classes in the late Republic and early Empire. How (in the Roman view) is virtuous behavior shaped by the emotions? How in particular do various Roman forms of fear, dismay, indignation, and revulsion support or constrain ethically significant behavior? How do the domains of these emotions - what they are "about" - intersect, overlap, or complement each other? How does their interaction create an economy of displeasure that aims to shape society in constructive ways?
