This volume sheds a unique light on the feeling of emotional dependence, a universal phenomenon which takes a very particular form in Japan. From the word amae, indulgence, derives the verb amaeru, to indulge, or to take advantage of someone's love or friendship. In baby-talk, the word amae evokes the notion of sugar or honey. A multitude of Japanese verbs derive from variations of amae, which leads to the conclusion that this sentiment is at the heart of the Japanese emotional life.
