According to the Western tradition, the essential aspect of human beings is rationality – not their capacity to feel deep, intense or complex emotions. Nevertheless, in the last decades philosophy has begun to study the emotions and the role they play in the constitution of our moral and aesthetic judgments. As a consequence, the old rationalistic paradigm has lost its centrality, allowing the development of new conceptions based on our emotional activity. But what are emotions? And which functions do they have in the production of a work of art – and in its perception?
At our next meeting we will discuss some of the central issues of philosophy of emotions. I look forward to welcoming you there!
