Grief, Intensive Living, and Charisma

Grief, Intensive Living, and Charisma

(p.95) 4 Grief, Intensive Living, and Charisma
Emotion, Identity, and Religion

Douglas J. Davies

Oxford University Press

This chapter brings together different views on negative and positive dimensions of emotions typified by the notions of identity depletion and intensive living, and relates these dimensions to the ideas of vitality and anomie, especially in the field of grief. It also extends this account of the dynamics of identity, vitality, and anomie to embrace the concept of charisma. The discussion of charisma shows how a sense of vitality can be perceived in certain persons who are responded to in such a way that they become religious leaders.

Keywords:   grief, intensive living, charisma, emotions, identity depletion, religious leaders
