Power Over vs. Power With

Bookmarked Joy and power – The Aesthetics of Joy by Ingrid Fetell Le (The Aesthetics of Joy by Ingrid Fetell Lee)

On first impression, power and joy feel in tension. Yet a closer look reveals that the way we view power can have important consequences for how much joy we feel as individuals, and as a society.

I hadn’t given thought to the connection between joy and power. Interesting premise that exerting power over damages joy while power with and power together builds joy.
