Abstract

In this article I present some aspects of social life in Romania which support the thesis that emotions are socially determined. I will present theoretical and empirical proofs that shame and guilt are distinct social emotions, organically intertwined. I advance a "psychosociological typology of shame" and I support the reconceptualization of "spiral of silence theory". I also mention the alienation of "emotional proletariat" in modern societies. Based on the axiom that prior to being sapiens, homo was sentiens and also on the fact that in real time emotions are primordial, I formulate several suggestions for the future research of social life and action.
