"...a strong and sustained piece of work that presents a truly original and thought-provoking analysis of emotions..."
--Nick Haslam, Department of Psychology, University of Melbourne
"The author does a fine job of working with divergent data rather than trying to force a theory."
Life is a sequence of emotional states. But what are emotions and why are they so important to us?In one of the most extensive investigations of the emotions ever published, Robert Roberts develops a novel conception of what emotions are and then applies it to a large range of types of emotion and related phenomena. Aimed principally at philosophers and psychologists, this book will certainly be accessible to readers in other disciplines such as religion and anthropology.

This is a brilliant book on a topic still much neglected in philosophy. It manifests great insight and deep reflection. As emotion books must do, it is peppered with concrete examples, both literary and everyday. As philosophical books must do, it engages in argument with example and counterexample, inviting--indeed, almost demanding--that the reader to engage in reconsidering this pervasive area of human life.
