Abstract

This is an extremely rich, wide ranging book, filled with insightful discussions of a large number of issues related to the general topic of the emotions. Its value lies not in its conclusions but in the details, which do not lend themselves easily to summarizing. So it must be said at the outset that this review will not do justice to the subtlety, complexity, and wit of this book.
