Living in Denial Free download ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ble; and the ski industry had to invest substantially in artificial snow making Stories in local and national newspapers linked the warm winter explicitly to global warming Yet residents did not write letters to the editor pressure politicians or cut down on use of fossil fuels Norgaard attributes this lack of response to the phenomenon of socially organized denial by which information about climate science is known in the abstract but disconnected from political social and private life and sees this as emblematic of. A few passages from Living in DenialThis state of affairs brings to mind the work of historical psychologist Robert J Lifton Lifton s research on Hiroshima survivors describes people in states of shock unable to respond rationally to the world around them He calls this condition psychic numbing Following his initial studies in Japan much of Lifton s work has been devoted to describing the effect of nuclear weapons on human psychology particularly for Americans see for example Hiroshima in America Fifty Years of Denial Out of this project Lifton describes people today as living in an age of numbing due to their awareness of the possibility of extinction from the presence of both nuclear weapons and the capacity for environmental degradation In this usage numbing comes not from a traumatic event but from a crisis of meaning Lifton says that all of us who live in the nuclear age experience some degree of psychic numbing We know that our lives can end at any moment yet we live as though we do not know this Lifton calls this condition the absurdity of the double life We live with the knowledge on the one hand that we each of us could be consumed in a moment together with everyone and everything we have touched or loved and on the other our tendency to go about business as usual continue with our routines as though no such threat existed According to Lifton the absurdity of the double life profoundly affects our thinking feeling identity sense of empowerment political imagination and morality He writes If at any moment nothing might matter who is to say that nothing matters now In her landmark book The Managed Heart Commercialization of Human Feeling sociologist Arlie Hochschild vividly exposes the relationship of seemingly private and personal emotions to social structure and political economy She writes about the signal function of emotions and their ability to provide information about our interpretations of the world uite provocatively and in contrast to the emotionreason dualism she writes that emotion can tell us about a way of seeing and that emotion is uniue among the senses because it is related to cognition She goes on to explain A black person may see the deprivation of the ghetto accurately rationally through indignation and anger than through obedience or resigned realism He will focus clearly on the policeman s bloodied club the landlord s Cadillac the look of disapproval on the employment agencies white face Outside of anger these images become like boulders on a mountainside miniscule parts of the landscape Hochschild writes that a person totally without emotion has no warning system no guidelines to the self relevance of a sight a memory or a fantasy Like one who cannot touch fire the emotionless person suffers a sense of arbitrariness which from the point of view of his or her self interest is irrational In fact emotion is a potential avenue to the reasonable view Sociologists of emotion also emphasize the role emotions play in the sociological imagination Emotions provide the missing link between personal troubles and broader public issues of social structure itself the defining hallmark of the sociological imagination Thus Hochschild notes When we do not feel emotion or disclaim emotion we lose touch with how we link inner to outer reality Citizens of wealthy nations who fail to respond to the issue of climate change benefit from their denial in economic terms They also benefit by avoiding the emotional and psychological entanglement and identity conflicts that may arise from knowing that one is doing the wrong thing global warming as an issue about which people care and have considerable information but one about which they don t really want to know and in some sense don t know how to know

Living in Denial Free download ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Global warming is the most significant environmental issue of our time yet public response in Western nations has been meager Why have so few taken any action In Living in Denial sociologist Kari Norgaard searches for answers to this uestion drawing on interviews and ethnographic data from her study of Bygdaby the fictional name of an actual rural community in western Norway during the unusually warm winter of 2000 2001In 2000 2001 the first snowfall came to Bygdaby two months later than usual; ice fishing was impossi. I appreciate this book for introducing me to the concept of implicatory denial not outright disputing facts or using euphemisms to lessen the blow of those facts but instead knowing and believing the facts but failing to consider the psychological political or moral implications that conventionally follow those facts Norgaard gives many many examples of the sorts of dead ends she reaches when trying to discuss climate change with the residents of BygdabyPeople gave an initial reaction of concern and then we hit a dead zone where there was suddenly not much to be said nothing to talk about From the things they said eg it s depressing not sure what to do I had the distinct sense that it was an issue that people were uncomfortable discussingThis definitely reflects my anecdotal experiences Norgaard goes in depth explaining how apathy takes work to create and that apathy can in fact plague people who are otherwise very empathetic when they feel a problem is just too overwhelming and unstoppable She explains how dominant social structures discourage challenging the status uo and that tackling climate change would reuire toppling nearly every status uo on the planetWhile I liked these points this really is of an academic paper than a book It s not a light or breezy read and I found myself fighting the urge to skip pages or entire chapters Compared to a book like The Great Derangement by Amitav Ghosh which looks at other reasons for the lack of serious considerations of climate change but manages to be entertaining and captivating throughout the process I would not recommend reading this book unless you are doing research related to this field but I do think it has some valuable insights The cliffnotes you see in this review and others should lay out all the most salient points
