Grief as a social emotion. Theoretical perspectives


Jakoby, N (2012). Grief as a social emotion. Theoretical perspectives. Death Studies, 36(8):679-711.

Abstract

The article explores a sociological perspective on grief as a social emotion. Focusing on the social bond with the deceased, the self-concept of the survivor or the power of feeling rules, general sociological theories of emotions (symbolic interactionism, structural theory, behavioral theory) have the potential to deepen the understanding of grief as a social emotion. The article concludes by presenting a cognitive-structural model of grief that integrates the different theoretical elements.
