(Not Passion's Slave: Emotions and Choice.pdf) The idea that we are in some significant sense responsible for our emotions is an idea that Robert Solomon has developed for almost three decades Here in a single volume he traces the development of this theory of emotions and elaborate it in detail Two themes run through his work the first presents a cognitive theory of emotions in which emotions are construed primarily as evaluative judgments The second proposes an existentialist perspective in which he defends the idea that as we are responsible for our emotions Indeed sometimes it even makes sense to say that we choose them While the first claim has gained increasing currency in the literature his claim about responsibility for emotions has continued to meet with considerable resistance and misinterpretation The new emphasis on evolutionary biology and neurology has mistakenly reinforced the popular prejudice that emotions happen to us and are entirely beyond our control br br This volume is also a kind of intellectual memoir of Solomons own development as a thinker The essays written in the s elaborate the themes of the intentionality of emotion and the claim that emotions are judgments in this period he is also increasingly preoccupied with how emotions vary and are identified in a variety of cultures In the s his interests evolve to consider the social and political role of emotions and theories about emotion The final section presents his current philosophical position on the seeming passivity of the passions Despite his own critical assessment of his earlier work he continues to argue that in the final analysis we are responsible for our emotions and existential quality of our lives brDownload and Read Online books ePub/PDF/Audible/Kindle, its easy way to streaming Not Passion's Slave: Emotions and Choice books for multiple devices.
