Abstract
  • The chapter begins with a common sense definition of emotion, illustrated through an extract from Marcel Proust, as the multitude of feelings (sentiments, passions, affections) through which we are affected by actual, imaginary, remembered and anticipated events, and on the basis of which we affect the world around us. A rapid overview of the history of the psychology of emotion is followed by a summary of critical responses to this mainstream literature. These critiques are evaluated, and then a final section presents some progressive possibilities immanent in current work. The chapter also provides suggested reading and website resources.
