How we learn to talk about our feelings - With Gunter Gebauer and Manfred Holodynski


Joy, anger, sorrow, shame – emotions and moods are our constant companions. Our ego plays a dual role: we experience and observe our emotions simultaneously. Sometimes they are familiar to us, and sometimes entirely foreign. We experience emotions as occurrences that are initially not under our control. They happen to us. Often, we find it difficult to communicate about our feelings. Naturally, we have the words to name them. But there is a difference between talking about objects and feelings. We feel our emotions instead of seeing or touching them. How can we recognise that another person is experiencing a feeling, which feeling exactly it is and how strong it is? Philosopher Gunter Gebauer and developmental psychologist Manfred Holodynski were curious to learn what neuroscience and sociology can tell us about this question.
