This course examines the role emotions play in our lives and critically examines some traditional beliefs about emotion from the standpoints of philosophy, psychology and sociology. The issues and topics considered in this course include the relation of emotions to reason, the role of feeling in moral judgment, and the relation of emotions to action. Students also consider specific emotions, such as love and anger, as well as looking at emotions from a biological view, as either adaptive responses, or forms of escape.
