Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I meant before that thinking that happiness and depression or sadness has an universal value like pshychologists thinks, goes agaisnt all the data recollected.. despite that, most phychologists stillt hing that their science universal.

they do not let any study or ethnography messed with their preconceived view.

So feelings do explain things.. but not in a vacuum. that was my point. They explain things but you need the context, this is why happiness or sadness can not give you a general answer to a general proble involving all societies.

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
