Spring Term 2018, Mondays, 13:00 – 15:00, ten weeks starting 15th January

Course Tutor: Jane O’Grady.

When you are angry or sad are you just having physical sensations? Or are anger or sadness, instead, ways of perceiving the situation you are in? Are emotions a distortion of our true (rational) nature, or essentially part of us? The way in which different philosophers have differently reconciled the cognitive and sensation aspects of emotion has always been closely bound up with different notions of what it means to be human. We examine theories about the self and its emotions from Homer to Sartre. See course outline(Word doc) for more information.
