Violence has always played a part in the religious imagination, from symbols and myths to legendary battles, from colossal wars to the theater of terrorism. The Oxford Handbook of Religion and Violence surveys intersections between religion and violence throughout history and around the world. The forty original essays in this volume include overviews of major religious traditions, showing how violence is justified within the literary and theological foundations of the tradition, how it is used symbolically and in ritual practice, and how social acts of violence and warfare have been justified by religious ideas. The essays also examine patterns and themes relating to religious violence, such as sacrifice and martyrdom, which are explored in cross-disciplinary or regional analyses; and offer major analytic approaches, from literary to social scientific studies. The contributors to this volume—-innovative thinkers who are forging new directions in theory and analysis related to religion and violence—-provide novel insights into this important field of studies. By mapping out the whole field of religion and violence, The Oxford Handbook of Religion and Violence will prove an authoritative source for students and scholars for years to come.

Music's ability to express and arouse emotions is a mystery that has fascinated both experts and laymen at least since ancient Greece. The predecessor to this book 'Music and Emotion' (OUP, 2001) was critically and commercially successful and stimulated much further work in this area. In the years since publication of that book, empirical research in this area has blossomed, and the successor to 'Music and Emotion' reflects the considerable activity in this area. The Handbook of Music and Emotion offers an 'up-to-date' account of this vibrant domain. It provides comprehensive coverage of the many approaches that may be said to define the field of music and emotion, in all its breadth and depth. The first section offers multi-disciplinary perspectives on musical emotions from philosophy, musicology, psychology, neurobiology, anthropology, and sociology. The second section features methodologically-oriented chapters on the measurement of emotions via different channels (e.g., self report, psychophysiology, neuroimaging). Sections three and four address how emotion enters into different aspects of musical behavior, both the making of music and its consumption. Section five covers developmental, personality, and social factors. Section six describes the most important applications involving the relationship between music and emotion. In a final commentary, the editors comment on the history of the field, summarize the current state of affairs, as well as propose future directions for the field. The only book of its kind, The Handbook of Music and Emotion will fascinate music psychologists, musicologists, music educators, philosophers, and others with an interest in music and emotion (e.g., in marketing, health, engineering, film, and the game industry). It will be a valuable resource for established researchers in the field, a developmental aid for early-career researchers and postgraduate research students, and a compendium to assist students at various levels. In addition, as with its predecessor, it will also attract interest from practising musicians and lay readers fascinated by music and emotion.

Music is a tremendously powerful channel through which people develop their personal and social identities. Music is used to communicate emotions, thoughts, political statements, social relationships, and physical expressions. But, just as language can mediate the construction and negotiation of developing identities, so music can also be a means of communication through which aspects of people's identities are constructed. Music can have a profound influence on our developing sense of identity, our values, and our beliefs, be it from rock music, classical music, or jazz. Musical identities (MacDonald, Hargreaves and Miell, 2002) was unique in being in being one of the first books to explore this fascinating topic. This new book documents the remarkable expansion and growth in the study of musical identities since the publication of the earlier work. The editors identify three main features of current psychological approaches to musical identities, which concern their definition, development, and the identification of individual differences, as well as four main real-life contexts in which musical identities have been investigated, namely in music and musical institutions; specific geographical communities; education; and in health and well-being. This conceptual framework provides the rationale for the structure of the Handbook. The book is divided into seven main sections. The first, 'Sociological, discursive and narrative approaches', includes several general theoretical accounts of musical identities from this perspective, as well as some more specific investigations. The second and third main sections deal in depth with two of the three psychological topics described above, namely the development of and individual differences in musical identities. The fourth, fifth and sixth main sections pursue three of the real-life contexts identified above, namely 'Musical institutions and practitioners', 'Education', and 'Health and well-being'. The seventh and final main section of the Handbook - 'Case studies' - includes chapters which look at particular musical identities in specific times, places, or contexts. The multidisciplinary range and breadth of the Handbook's contents reflect the rapid changes that are taking place in music, in digital technology, and in their role in society as a whole, such that the study of musical identity is likely to proliferate even further in the future.

English summary: Guided Imagery and Music (GIM) is a integrative and psychodynamic psychotherapy developed by Dr. Helen Bonny in den late sixties of the last century. GIM works with classical music also integrating spiritual and transpersonal dimensions. GIM is taught and implemented worldwide. In contrast to other receptive forms of music therapy where the verbal exchange of the music experience takes place after having listened to the music, the specificity of GIM is the continuing dialog between the therapist and the client while listening in an altered state of consciousness.During his "music journey" the client stays in the here and now and is alive to the importance of confronting his/her conflicts by conducting him/herself through the imagery with help of the music and the verbal interventions of the therapist (instead of reporting his/her experiences afterwards). This volume presents new developments in GIM and methods of music imagery in German speaking countries and invites to discuss them. The reader is encouraged to deal with different themes and controversial issues like f. ex. how GIM therapists with different therapeutic backgrounds (depth psychological, transpersonal, systemic, etc.) explain and treat psychological disorders with GIM; how can GIM support mentalization; which role does spirituality play as psychotherapy or in psychotherapy; or in general: which influence has the digital age on therapeutic values. The authors investigate when, for whom and why the Bonny Method of GIM or modified forms of GIM and music imagery are indicated. 14 chapters written by 14 authors concentrate on concepts, clinical applications and training.

Im Gegensatz zu anderen musikimaginativen Methoden der Musikpsychotherapie, bei denen das Erleben erst nach dem Horen mitgeteilt wird, ist das Spezifische dieser Methode der Dialog zwischen Patient und Therapeut wahrend des Musikerlebens in einem veranderten Bewusstseinszustand. Dadurch bleibt der Patient auf seiner "Musikreise" im Hier und Jetzt und kann sich seinen in den Imaginationen verschlusselt auftauchenden Konflikten mit Hilfe der Musik und der verbalen Interventionen des Therapeuten handelnd stellen anstatt nur uber sie zu reden. Mit dem vorliegenden Buch werden die Grundlagen von GIM sowie weitere musikimaginative Methoden an praktischen Beispielen vertieft bzw. modifiziert und vor dem Hintergrund der heutigen Realitaten auch kritisch hinterfragt und zur Diskussion gestellt. Der Leser wird angeregt, sich mit verschiedenen Themen und Therapieverstandnissen auseinander zu setzen, z.B. welchen Einfluss das digitale Zeitalters auf therapeutische Wertvorstellungen haben konnte; wie GIM TherapeutInnen verschiedener Orientierung (z.B. tiefenpsychologisch, transpersonal, systemisch, etc.) Storungs- und Krankheitsbildern mit GIM begrunden und behandeln; welche Rolle Spiritualitat als Psychotherapie oder in der Psychotherapie spie

Few areas have witnessed the type of growth we have seen in the affective sciences in the past decades. Across psychology, philosophy, economics, and neuroscience, there has been an explosion of interest in the topic of emotion and affect. Comprehensive, authoritative, up-to-date, and easy-to-use, the new Oxford Companion to Emotion and the Affective Sciences is an indispensable resource for all who wish to find out about theories, concepts, methods, and research findings in this rapidly growing interdisciplinary field - one that brings together, amongst others, psychologists, neuroscientists, social scientists, philosophers, and historians. Organized by alphabetical entries, and presenting brief definitions, concise overviews, and encyclopaedic articles (all with extensive references to relevant publications), this Companion lends itself to casual browsing by non-specialists interested in the fascinating phenomena of emotions, moods, affect disorders, and personality as well as to focused search for pertinent information by students and established scholars in the field. Not only does the book provide entries on affective phenomena, but also on their neural underpinnings, their cognitive antecedents and the associated responses in physiological systems, facial, vocal, and bodily expressions, and action tendencies. Numerous entries also consider the role of emotion in society and social behavior, as well as in cognitive processes such as those critical for perception, attention, memory, judgement and decision-making. The volume has been edited by a group of internationally leading authorities in the respective disciplines consisting of two editors (David Sander and Klaus Scherer) as well as group of 11 associate editors (John T. Cacioppo, Tim Dalgleish, Robert Dantzer, Richard J. Davidson, Ronald B. de Sousa, Phoebe C. Ellsworth, Nico Frijda, George Loewenstein, Paula M. Niedenthal, Peter Salovey, and Richard A. Shweder). The members of the editorial board have commissioned and reviewed contributions from major experts on specific topics. In addition to comprehensive coverage of technical terms and fundamental issues, the volume also highlights current debates that inform the ongoing research process. In addition, the Companion contains a wealth of material on the role of emotion in applied domains such as economic behaviour, music and arts, work and organizational behaviour, family interactions and group dynamics, religion, law and justice, and societal change. Highly accessible and wide-ranging, this book is a vital resource for scientists, students, and professionals eager to obtain a rapid, conclusive overview on central terms and topics and anyone wanting to learn more about the mechanisms underlying the emotions dominating many aspects of our lives.
