Shame is often viewed as a particularly negative feeling. It might be defined as a feeling compounded of incompetence, indecency, and blame-worthiness, that can lead to self-loathing as well as anger directed inwardly or outwardly. In more extreme cases, it might be experienced as an attack on one’s identity, caused by a sense of inadequacy. On this view, shame therefore seems to be an entirely negative emotion. Is this correct, however? Or does shame have a significant role to play in our moral lives?

Dr Chris Groves (Social Science, Cardiff University) explores some reflections from philosophers on this under-explored emotion and its moral meaning.

Join us at The Gate on Tuesday 16 May from 20:00.
