From the starting point of the work of Catherine Lutz, done in the Ifaluk Islands, we intend, with this essay, to highlight the way in which the Ifaluk regulate their social order and are regulated through the expression of emotions, showing, complementary, that embodied expressions, which constitute emotions, gain meaning and develop themselves through the groups. Moreover, although in a way which is more implicit than explicit, we intend to show the importance of fieldwork research for the understanding of the function of emotions.
Emotions, emotion regulation, social regulation, Ifaluk Islands.
