9780199777600: The Psychology of Passion: A Dualistic Model (Series in Positive Psychology)

The concept of passion is one we regularly use to describe our interests, and yet there is no broad theory that can explain the development and consequences of passion for activities across people's lives. In The Psychology of Passion, Robert J. Vallerand presents the first such theory, providing a complete presentation of the Dualistic Model of Passion and the empirical evidence that supports it. Vallerand conceives of two types of passion: harmonious passion, which remains under the person's control, and obsessive passion, which controls the person. While the first typically leads to adaptive behaviors, the obsessive form of passion leads to less adaptive and, at times, maladaptive behaviors. Vallerand highlights the effects of these two types of passion on a number of psychological phenomena, such as cognition, emotions, performance, relationships, aggression, and violence. He also discusses the development of passion and reviews a range of literature on passion for activities.

Review:


"After reading this book, it is clear that one should want harmonious passion and not
obsessive passion in almost all cases. By the end of the book, the reader is undoubtedly
convinced that two forms of passion exist and that many aspects of a person's life can be
influenced--for good or bad--by which type of passion he or she has." --PsycCRITIQUES


"I've long been passionate about the work of Robert Vallerand, and have regularly pointed others to it. This award-winning book is now the go-to resource for anyone who wishes to learn-from one of the foremost scientists in positive psychology-how and when people's passions contribute or detract from their wellbeing."
--Barbara Fredrickson, Kenan Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience, University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill; author of Positivity and Love 2.0


"Although people often talk about passion, it received very little empirical attention until Robert J. Vallerand turned his scientific eye to the topic. In this book, he uses motivational concepts to distinguish harmonious from obsessive passions, and he reviews extensive research showing both the bright and dark consequences of these passions. Vallerand's rigorous work on passions is accompanied by real-life examples that will have meaning for all readers, bringing to life this important area of psychology."
--Edward L. Deci, Gowen Professor, University of Rochester; author of Why We Do What We Do


"In his highly original program of research, Professor Vallerand explores a fascinating, novel psychological construct, that of passion. It turns out that passion isn't reducible to a high degree of motivation, and that while in its obsessive manifestation it can override other concerns, it can also be harmoniously integrated with individuals' varied preoccupations. This intriguing and well-supported work is a must-read for all those for whom motivation represents a quintessential psychological concept that drives all behavior."
--Arie W. Kruglanski, Distinguished University Professor, University of Maryland, College Park
