It discusses the determinants of expression, the cultural rules of regulating and revealing emotional states, and the importance of the situational context for the reception of a mimic expression. Moreover, a complex cognitive process connected with reading the emotional states of others was presented, in which the recipient makes inferences about the social world, the way the observed person perceives the world, as well as his/her properties and attributes.</p> Julia Łosiak-Pilch Copyright (c) 2022 Fri, 10 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0200 Emocje a interpersonalna komunikacja międzykulturowa <p><strong>EMOTIONS AND INTERPERSONAL CROSS-CULTURAL COMMUNICATION</strong></p> <p>Understanding one’s own emotional states as well as the emotional states present in the partner of an intercultural interaction seems to be something essential for the success of the encounter. However, emotions remain ephemeral, eluding rational discernment and control, as well as there is a lack of scientific agreement about their nature. Emotional competence, including the regulation of emotions during intercultural interaction, seems especially important from the point of view of reducing negative consequences of such interactions. It’s also a basis for the adaptation process, but also an element of a person’s psychological development.</p> Adam Żaliński Copyright (c) 2022 Fri, 10 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0200 Emocje w królestwie racjonalności. O roli emocji w działaniach krakowskich uczelni <p><strong>EMOTIONS IN THE REALM OF RATIONALITY: THE ROLE OF EMOTIONS IN KRAKÓW’S UNIVERSITIES’ ACTIVITIES</strong></p> <p>The recent research on organizations and management proved that despite the claims of rationality, emotions play an important role in decisionmaking and are set the foundations for organizational culture. The present chapter is the result of research aiming at analyzing organizational culture of selected universities located in Krakow as perceived by the deans. Thanks to the place of Krakow on academic map of Poland, the Authors were able to investigate various types of universities: traditional academic university, technical, and artistic. The research proves that, despite the claims of rational objectivity, emotions are equally important in organizational culture of the universities in question, thus any dean must take the emotions into consideration while managing his/her faculty, especially during the times of rapid changes.</p> Aleksandra Lis, Radosław Rybkowski Copyright (c) 2022 Fri, 10 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0200 Białoruska poezja protestu. Symbole, emocje i kontekst <p><strong>BELARUSIAN PROTEST POETRY: SYMBOLS, EMOTIONS AND CONTEXT</strong></p> <p>The article discusses protest poetry written by Belarusians poets after the rigged elections on August 9, 2020 and during the so-called “Belarusian revolution”. Using the example of three poems in Russian, Belarusian and Polish, the paper tries to deconstruct the meaning of symbols actively used in protest poetry and also sketches the context in which these symbols exist. Poetry in the article is also considered as a way of expressing emotions at various structural levels.</p> Vera Monina, Barbara Weżgowiec Copyright (c) 2022 Fri, 10 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0200 Wielopoziomowy model emocji w strukturze osobowości kulturowej.
