: I would like to know about this word. origin, usage, connotation, and is there a reason to use it in capital letters in the sentece:
: "These two films together with the von Daniken Schwarmerei, may be regarded as the defining syndrome of a certain complex of obesessions very much at large in our time."
: I understand the meaning of it as overemotional, but could it be a name of one of his works? or just a title to his book-movie "Chariot of the gods) to which he relates before.
: Thank you very much
This word was new to me. Apparently it means overemotionalITY, and it's capitalized because it's a German noun.
