Philosophy of Emotionsby Howard Wettstein, Peter French
Pub. Date: 02/01/1999
Publisher: University of Notre Dame Press
Although generally philosophers have put a high valuation on reason, increasingly the role of emotions in motivating action is being recognized. The essays in this volume explore the emotions from a variety of perspectives, ranging from Aristotelian views of the passions to the new findings of cognitive science, and from such diverse starting points as medieval literature and recent psychological studies.
