"Knuuttila's book is certainly a must read for anyone interested in the history of thinking about emotions.... It is well researched, highly informative, and thorough in its presentation--an impressive work of scholarship by any measure.... The book will stand as one of the authoritative guides to this material for years to come."--Blake Dutton, The Review of Metaphysics
"While primarily of interest to philosophers and theologians, the book may yet have something of value for historians of medicine...portions of Knuuttila's book could have contemporary significance for psychology as well." --CHOICE
