The concept of emotion is central to our understanding of ourselves. Since Darwin's writings, our view of emotion, our origins, and ourselves has changed. Emotion, published in 1977, is the work of six authors each writing about emotion from different perspectives, but, based on year-long conversations with one another about their ideas, in ways that provide a comprehensive account of the ways in which we understand ourselves.Chapter 1 (Douglas K. Candland) places the concept of emotion in historical perspective, showing how persistent issues reappear and re-evolve; Chapters 2 and 3 (Hormones and Emotion; the Nervous System and Emotion) by Alan I. Leshner and Roger M. Tarpy are areas in which significant advances have occurred since the publication of this book, yet the issues they lay out remain contemporary. Chapter 4, by Robert Plutchik offers an evolutionary vie of how cognition and emotion are related. Ernest Keen provides, in Chapter 5, an analysis of Freud and Jung's theories of emotion. In Chapter 6, Joseph P. Fell offers a statement and analysis of phenomenological theories of emotion.Taken together, these chapters offer a rich analysis of human thinking about emotions.
