The Psychological and Cultural Foundations of East Asian Cognition

Over the past few decades, a body of research has begun to emerge on the dialectical experience of positive and negative emotions. In this chapter, this research is explored in detail. First, the chapter delineates what dialectical emotions encompass and how they relate to other constructs. Additionally, it outlines how dialectical emotions traditionally have been measured within different approaches. Building on the different ways to conceptualize and measure dialectical emotions, the authors then review studies that have examined the nature and variations of dialectical emotions in Western cultural contexts. Subsequently, a review of findings that have demonstrated cultural differences in dialectical emotions is provided. The chapter concludes with implications of dialectical emotions, and some of their personal and interpersonal consequences are discussed and future directions proposed.
