Inhaltsangabe: When Stanford M. Lyman authored The Seven Deadly Sins: Society and Evil in 1978 it was hailed by Alasdair MacIntyre as "a book of absorbing interest and importanceâ€¦[that] places us all in his debt." By Nelson Hart as "a masterful and thought-provoking bookâ€¦[that] is the only scholarly treatment of sin that is so well-informed by the best of ancient through modern perspectives." By James A. Aho as a work whose "abstract hardly does justice to the scholarly and detailed analysis of sin." And by Harry Cohen as a "bookâ€¦[that] stands as a beautiful illustration of what holistic, idiosyncratic, interdisciplinary, and creative thinking and writing can bring to bear on the age-old problem of society and evil."
The American Sociological Association's section on the Sociology of the Emotions selected this book as one of the works that laid the foundations for the study of pride, lust, envy, and anger--basic sentiments embedded in the social process.
For this revised and expanded edition Lyman has written a new chapter, "Sentiments, Sin, and Social Conflict: Toward a Sociology of the Emotions." The new edition will be a valuable work for courses in social psychology, ethics, deviance, and the sociology of morals and of religion.
From the Publisher: This sparkling curiosity was inspired by Ian Fleming, who had the fine idea of asking eminent writers to comment on the deadly sins for THE TIMES of London. The result is a witty display of erudition as each author essays his or her assigned vice—Auden “Anger,” Connolly “Covetousness,” Wilson “Envy,” Leigh Fermor “Gluttony,” Sykes “Lust,” Sitwell “Pride,” and Waugh “Sloth.”
