In this book, Carolyn Price focuses on some central questions about the nature and function of emotion. She explores the ways in which emotion contrasts with belief and considers how our emotional responses relate to our values, our likes, and our needs. And she investigates some of the different ways in which emotional responses can be judged -- as fitting or misplaced, rational or irrational, authentic or inauthentic, sentimental or profound. Throughout, she develops a particular view of emotion as a complex and diverse phenomenon which reflects both our common evolutionary past and our different cultural and personal histories.
