Overview

"Emotions, Values, and the Law brings together ten of John Deigh's essays written over the past fifteen years." Together, the essays in this collection represent an effort to shift our understanding of the phenomena traditionally studied in moral and political philosophy from that of their being products of reason and will, operating independently of feeling and sentiment, to that of their being manifestations of the work of emotion.
