Title: Nakedness, Shame, and Embarrassment
Authors: Barbara Górnicka
Keywords: Embarrassment
Issue Date: 2016
Publisher: Springer
Description: This book is not concerned with any form of moral judgement on those who choose to use their naked bodies as a form of self-expression or identity, or whether they should be allowed to decide how to enjoy their nakedness. What it is concerned with is understanding why and how it has come about that we see nakedness shrouded in shameful feelings. In order to find some answers we first need to comprehend the ways in which shame and embarrassment operate, and how they can be managed and controlled; this is where careful examination of the naturist group proves to be extremely valuable. Then, to avoid this investigation becoming superficial and narrow in scope, I also attempt to track down the most outstanding clues in the history of the west that will help us form a fuller, processual view of the relationship between nakedness and shame
