- secrecy, shame, guilt, and moral absolutism
a correspondent just wrote this to me: (in reply to http://jrfibonacci.wordpress.com/2012/04/13/introspection-courage-and-shame )
Always interesting to read your posts. I am not sure that shame leads to courage. How so?
It is my observation that shame, as opposed to guilt, is a socially conditioned emotion. For example, people in different cultures will feel shame about different things.
Don't miss this one.
