Constructing contempt

Victoria L. Spring, Christopher Daryl Cameron, Kurt Gray, Kristen A. Lindquist

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

Abstract

Gervais & Fessler argue that contempt is a natural kind and that its experience cannot be explained by a constructionist account of emotion. We dispute these claims and offer a positive constructionist model of contempt that accounts for the existing evidence and unifies conflicting findings in the literature on contempt.
