The experience of guilt and shame: A phenomenological-psychological study
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Education.
2009 (English)In: Human Studies, ISSN 0163-8548, E-ISSN 1572-851X, Vol. 32, no 3, 335-355 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This study aims at discovering the essential constituents involved in the experiences of guilt and shame. Guilt concerns a subject's action or omission of action and has a clear temporal unfolding entailing a moment in which the subject lives in a care-free way. Afterwards, this moment undergoes a reconstruction, in the moment of guilt, which constitutes the moment of negligence. The reconstruction is a comprehensive transformation of one's attitude with respect to one's ego; one's action; the object of guilt and the temporal-existential experience. The main constituents concerning shame are its anchorage in the situation to which it refers; its public side involving the experience of being perceptually objectified; the exclusion of social community; the bodily experience; the revelation of an undesired self; and the genesis of shame in terms of a history of frozen now-ness. The article ends with a comparison between guilt and shame. Adapted from the source document.
