Editorial Reviews


The chapters in this wonderful book are informative, intelligent, and occasionally startling. Emotion and consciousness are two of psychology's hottest topics, and this book explores their collision. As you might expect, the bang is a big one."--Daniel Gilbert, PhD, Department of Psychology, Harvard University

"This book represents a blossoming-out of a number of important trends in thinking about emotions. Major issues related to unconscious and conscious processes in emotion--such as cognition-emotion interactions, affect induction, and embodiment in perception and thought--are examined in the context of closely reasoned and expertly executed research programs. Several chapters present promising developments of new research streams, substantially adding to insight and knowledge. Brimming with information, this is a well-written, challenging text for graduate-level students interested in current research areas and controversies in the field."--Nico H. Frijda, PhD, Department of Psychology (Emeritus), University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands

"Although agreement remains scarce, emotions--both conscious and unconscious--are attracting unprecedented attention in human psychology. A banquet of theoretical perspectives is well shared in this stimulating volume, whose contributors seek to penetrate the scientific and philosophical mysteries of affective experience. Will be of interest to all those concerned with ongoing controversies in emotion studies."--Jaak Panksepp, PhD, Department of Psychology (Emeritus), Bowling Green State University; Affective Neuroscience Research Program, Falk Center for Molecular Therapeutics, Northwestern University

"Remarkable....A rich tapestry that includes crucial summaries of state-of-the-science research and theorizing and the articulation and interrogation of key assumptions in the field. The editors did a fine job of bringing coherence to a quite heterogeneous collection of theories, concepts, methods, and research findings by insisting that each chapter explicitly consider the same set of questions and by providing a detailed roadmap to the contributions that in itself is a model of what the new science of emotion can achieve."--Choice

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Third World on August 22, 2007
Format: Paperback
Probably the most insightful collection of essays I've ever come across on the subject. Its rather difficult to be laconic in this review. Kinda feel like you are leaving out too many things. The Editorial reviews are extremely eloquent in the book's appraisal. The Psychologists cover so many aspects of the Emotion and Consciousness discourse but some that I found most critical are: Unconscious Emotions, Core Affective States, Situated Conceptualization and Rule Based Processing. The Bibliography is outstanding as well. This is a must read.
