Anthony Steinbock: "Shame as Self-Revelation"
"I treat shame as a fundamental personal emotion. Specifically, I describe shame as a self-revelatory, disjunctive experience as being exposed to another. I further characterize the temporality of shame as "presenting," and examine the negative valence peculiar to this experience. After developing its religious, moral, and philosophical implications, I delineate various modalities of shame."
