This book provides a relatively brief but detailed description of both classic and contemporary theory and research on emotions within each of the four major theoretical traditions that have shaped—and continue to shape —how psychologists think about emotions. KEY TOPICS: Written in an informal style, it explains how each perspective defines, constructs theories about, and conducts research on emotion — and presents four often very different pictures of what emotions are thought to be. An abundance of examples drawn from real life, literature, and popular culture, and “thought experiments” help readers relate topics to the emotions they experience in their own lives.

From the Publisher:

This text provides a relatively brief description of classic and contemporary theory and research on emotions within each of the four major theoretical traditions that have shaped--and continue to shape --how psychologists think about the field. Written in an informal style, it explains how each perspective defines, constructs theories about, and conducts research on emotion -- and presents four often very different pictures of what emotions are thought to be. An abundance of examples drawn from real life, literature, and popular culture, and "thought experiments" help students relate topics to the emotions they experience in their own lives.

From the Back Cover:

The author of this essential text on the science of emotion examines each of the four major theoretical points of view representing most contemporary research on the subject: Darwinian, Jamesian, Cognitive, and Social Constructivist. He describes the major premises of each tradition, compares them to one another, briefly details the major research defining each point of view, and concludes each chapter with recommendations for further reading. Randolph R. Cornelius emphasizes the importance of the scientific and objectivc approach to the study of emotions and stresses the value of examining each perspective in its own terms as well as those of the other three. He includes many examples from contemporary life and literature to help students identify with the topics covered. An entire chapter is devoted to contrasting how each of the four traditions would explain four different emotions: fear, anger, love, and hope. The text closes with an appendix providing an overview of the neurophysiology of emotion.
