Book Description

This ebook; Scientific Pollyannaism: From Inquisition to Positive Psychology (PDF) argues that the story of the orphan girl Pollyanna (namely; her strategy of playing the “glad games” to manage abuse; loss; and social prejudice) serves as a framework for scrutinizing historical forms of Western scientific Pollyannaism. The author explores Pollyannaism as it relates to the sciences; demonstrating how the approach has been used throughout modern Western history to buoy up happiness and to criticize negative human emotional states. These attempts; carried out by scientists and popularized as scientific; emphasize on negating the role of the environment and on promoting different forms of emotional control. At last; the ebook emphasizes strategies used to force individuals into becoming Pollyannas about science itself.
