About Tiffany Watt-Smith: Schandenfreude: The Joy of Another’s Misfortune
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Schadenfreude – enjoying the pain and failures of others – is an all-too-familiar feeling. In a time of polarised politics, twitter trolls and ‘sidebars of shame’, it has never been more relevant.
Recent studies have shown that we smile more at a rival’s loss than at our own success. But why can it be so much fun to witness another’s distress? And what, if anything, should we do about it?
In Schadenfreude, Tiffany Watt Smith argues that rather than an emotional glitch, Schadenfreude can reveal profound truths about our relationships with others and our sense of who we are.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Tiffany Watt-Smith: Schandenfreude: The Joy of Another’s Misfortune are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
