      At moment I'm dealing with the relationship between rites (broad sense) and emotions. Actualy, it's a kind of bridge between Anthropology and Psychology. The start point is that all cultures take the emotions in mind using some kind of ritual; there is no meaning for emotions - in the culture - in there is no a kind of ceremony. Having this in mind, I think that the violence between groups - or a peaceful relationship - are related to the fact that in these groups there is, or not, a kind or ritual dealing with the emotions thal arise from the contact with the strange. For the psychologist it's quite acceptable that the life of the emotions use allways some kind of bridge or mediation in order to present or elaborate itself. It's not difficult to understand that emotions not elaborate bring some kind of problems or pathology (socialy or personaly).
