Editorial Reviews

Review

"Stocker's new book is a pleasure to read, as he is open in entertaining counterarguments and is generous in crediting the work of others. Indeed, there is no other book that I know of which makes the argument in favor of philosophers rethinking their views of emotions as fairly, cogently, and wisely. Stocker and Hegeman have written an enlightening and stimulating book that pursues the reader to reexamine prevailing views of emotions among philosophers. Stocker and Hegeman have made a significant contribution in this book in defending the idea that `the unfelt life is not worth living'(186)." Elliot L. Jurist, Metaphilosophy LLC and Blackwell Publishers Ltd.

"Stocker has written a rich and provocative book. Its range and fertitlity is much greater than I can convey in this review. There are interesting dicussions of pleasure....And throughout, Stocker presses disquieting questions of contemporary theorists of emotion and value. Philosophers, even and perhaps especially those whom Stocker means to confound, will benefit from perusing its pages." John Deigh, The Philosophical Review

Book Description

This book is the result of a uniquely productive union of philosophy, psychoanalysis, and anthropology, and explores the complexity and importance of emotions. Michael Stocker places emotions at the very center of human identity, life and value. He shows how important are the social and emotional contexts of ethical dilemmas and inner conflicts, and he challenges philosophical theories that try to overgeneralise and over simplify by leaving out the particulars of each situation. This book will interest a broad range of readers across the disciplines of philosophy and psychology.
