kierkegaard and shame

Inspired by an ad for this art exhibition.

Aaaand SHAME!

Inspired by, uh, discussions about shame I guess.  Long story short: people care about shame, and in particular what the difference is between it and guilt.  Still not obvious to me why… it has to do with the Other/how we interact with others, how we internalize values… Freud and Sartre both cared about it.

(I don’t think it’s really that important… or interesting…)
