Abstract:

Generally, it is assumed that nationalism and patriotism are different concepts describing individualsâ?? relationships toward their own nation. Whereas the former is seen as unquestioning idealization of the own nation together with beliefs in its superiority and devaluation of foreigners, the latter is perceived as conditional identification with the own country. The patriotic individual is only loyal toward hers or his nation, if the political system is bound to universal humanistic values concerning democracy as well as the acceptance of out-groups.Nevertheless, in many empirical studies both factors correlate with each other, i.e. nationalists and patriots obviously share at least in part the same attitudes. Interestingly, the emotional dimension of nationalism and patriotism is always the same: pride. Here, it is claimed that pride on nationalist versus patriotic attitude objects does not really fit our theoretical conceptions. Pride includes competition which, therefore, might coincide with hostility against foreigners because they are perceived as rivals.This paper addresses the emotional dimension of nationalism and patriotism. It is discussed whether we should think about other emotions describing better patriotic attitudes. Therefore, it is plumbed the depths of the theoretical meaning of emotions like pride, joy, happiness, etc. Furthermore, empirical results of a preliminary study are presented demonstrating that the cognitive elements of nationalistic and patriotic attitudes are related to different emotions.

Nationalism is unquestioning idealization of the nation with beliefs in its superiority and devaluation of foreigners. Patriotism is identification with one’s country. But the identifica- tion depends on whether the political system accepts universal humanistic values
