Summary:
Peter Goldie opens the path to a deeper understanding of our emotional lives through a lucid philosophical exploration of this surprisingly neglected topic. He illuminates the phenomena of emotion by drawing not only on philosophy but also on literature and science. He considers the roles of culture and evolution in the development of our emotional capabilities. This fascinating book gives an accessible but penetrating exploration of a subject that is important butmysterious to all of us. Any reader interested in emotion, and its role in our understanding of our lives, will find much to think about here.
