"The crisply written nature of the text and its ample practical examples allow this difficult, timely topic to be addressed with eloquence and relative ease."--CHOICE

is philosophically consistent, clearly and persuasively written, and thoroughly researched. Its careful and modest mode of interdisciplinary inquiry sets a good example for philosophers, especially those writing in moral psychology, interested in integrating into their method the findings of the social sciences."--E. Christian Brugger, Review of Metaphysics
"This book counts among the finest philosophical, interdisciplinary treatments of emotions in the recent literature."--Jason Clark, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
