  • 負の感情発生メカニズムとしての相対的剝奪


<p>This article tries to outline the positioning of emotions in sociological action theories, and further explore possible development of explanation of social phenomena incorporating psychological generation mechanism of emotions, with relative deprivation theory as an example. In sociology, emotions, in particular negative emotions which would lead to social change, cannot be ignored as “live coals” which affects actor’s action tendency and prepares potential actions. As shown in the application of the Yitzhaki (1979) theory, micro-macro-theoretic models explaining macro state change via micro psychological generating mechanisms of emotions has great potential in predicting the dynamics of social change.</p>
