Facial Expression

Facial Expression

(p.110) 5 Facial Expression

Mitchell S. Green (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter refines and defends the conception of emotions as literally perceptible in the face. It begins with an overview of Darwin's position on facial expression as espoused in his The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals. Later theories of the psychology and evolutionary biology of facial expression are then considered: the Neurocultural View as espoused by P. Ekman, W. Friesen, R. Levenson, and others; and the Behavioral Ecology View as espoused by A. Fridlund and others. After objections to both of these more recent views are raised, a new view of facial expression is espoused, the Strategic Readout View (SRV). The SRV builds on earlier chapters and incorporates the insights of both the Neurocultural and Behavioral Ecology views.

Keywords:   facial expression, Neurocultural View, Behavioral Ecology View, Darwin, P. Ekman, W. Friesen, R. Levenson, A. Fridlund
