Our relationship with the world and each other is infused with feeling. By the same token, our emotional lives are fascinatingly complex. Why we feel the way we do, or why our emotions sometimes tell us the opposite of what reason might recommend, is not always clear. This book offers avenues to perhaps learn to know yourself better. Bringing together psychologists, artists, historians, and poets, it unpacks your emotional baggage by finding play in everyday feelings and pleasure where you least expect it.
Through games, questionnaires, and psychological quizzes, you can explore what the history, science, and philosophy of emotions demonstrates about why you feel.
The Book of Emotions will:
- Help you understand your own feelings with games, questionnaires, psychological tests and charts.
- Explore what the history, science and philosophy of emotions demonstrates about why you feel the way you do.
- Reveal unexpected truths about why disgust is so important to our evolution, where in the body you feel love or sadness and the relationship between the mind and the body.
- Explore how art reflects inner emotions.
