Introduction to Cyberemotions

Janusz Hołyst

Abstract

Even a beginner in psychology or sociology agrees that emotions can crucially influence our life and they can do it even without our awareness. “No need to get emotional about it” is a response often heard when trying to calm someone down. But the fact is that we do need to get emotional. Emotions are the backbone of family life; they enable us to react in dangerous situations; they create the group experience of a football crowd, a pop concert or a historical event. Emotions are part of what makes us human. We cannot escape from them since they belong to the core of our human nature.
