Promotional Information

The way we tell stories influences how others react to our emotions, and impacts how we cope with emotions ourselves.

About the Author

Tilmann Habermas teaches psychoanalysis at the Goethe-Universitat Frankfurt Am Main, Germany. His work on the development of the life story in adolescence has evolved into a sixteen-year longitudinal study of life narratives.

Reviews

'In this highly engaging and interdisciplinary book, Habermas integrates philosophy, linguistics, psychology, and psychoanalysis to explore the intersection of emotion and narrative as fundamental to human communication. Narratives both form and transform our emotional experience; Habermas weaves a compelling story that places emotion at the center of human interaction.' Robyn Fivush, Samuel Candler Dobbs Professor of Psychology, Emory University, Georgia
'This is an outstanding achievement. Nestled within this masterful work, which explores the transformational power of narrating our emotional experiences, is a story of the author's boundless curiosity, passion, and humanity, which radiate from every page. If you, like me, are fascinated by the role of narrative, you cannot afford to be without this book.' Antonino Ferro, Member of the Italian Psychoanalytic Society and the American Psychoanalytic Association, and Recipient of the Mary S. Sigourney Award
'This book sheds light on a fundamental axis of our human existence. It clearly and precisely explains the why and how of the daily exchange process in which we tell others what we just went through and we listen to others telling us their own experiences.' Bernard Rime, Psychological Sciences Research Institute, Universite Catholique de Louvain, Belgium
'This is the most far-reaching exploration of emotion and narrative to date. It opens up new and compelling perspectives on emotions as a social and communicative phenomenon, on our power to transform emotions through narration, and on the significance of perspective-taking for coping. For the interdisciplinary field of memory studies, it is a true godsend.' Astrid Erll, Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany
'No book on the subject of emotion and narrative can hold a candle to Habermas' cutting-edge and wide-ranging monograph. Meticulously researched and cogently argued, this landmark work will be essential reading not only for specialists in emotion psychology, but for everyone interested in autobiographical storytelling and the centrality of narrative to emotion.' Ansgar Nunning, International Graduate Centre for the Study of Culture, Justus Liebig University Giessen, Germany
