Information sheet


A Forbidden Emotion
We are all familiar with situations in which we feel shame. Nevertheless, we are rarely conscious of this emotion, which is perhaps the most painful to experience. In fact, shame could be called the “Cinderella” among our emotions (Léon Wurmser). The reason for this, according to social scientist Stephan Marks, is that “we don’t talk about shame, we don’t show shame, but rather we hide it and keep it secret. Shame has become an emotion most people are ashamed of.”

What types of shame are there? How does it come about? What is the significance of shame avoidance mechanisms for communal living, or even entire peoples? Marks answers these and other questions comprehensively and clearly. This book demonstrates impressively that many conflicts among people become understandable when viewed from the perspective of the question of shame – and they can be resolved as well.
