Emotions under Siege?

An Interdisciplinary Symposium on the Emotions

 

 

 

Friday 14 May

 

How should we broadly characterize emotion, accounting for both its cognitive and preconscious attributes, and what are the implications of this view for an understanding of human life as unique?

 

How should we conceptualise the relation among emotions, the body, language and reason?

 

What experiences or examples should we take to be most revealing about the nature of the emotions and their relation to other aspects of the human person?
