Abstract / Description of output

Carolyn Price’s book Emotion is not only a clear, concise and insightful introduction to the current debates in philosophy of emotions, but also a very well-argued defence of her functionalist and teleosemantic approach towards emotions. For Price, emotions should be understood in terms of their functions that are supposed come into play, and these functions should be explained in historical terms, as rooted in our evolutionary history, cultural background and personal experience.
