New Book: Emotion and Cognitive Life in Medieval and Early Modern Philosophy

9780199579914_140To quote from the cover: “Thirteen new essays investigate the continuities between medieval and early modern thinking about the emotions, and open up a contemporary debate on the relationship between emotions, cognition, and reason, and the way emotions figure in our own cognitive lives. A team of leading philosophers of the medieval, renaissance, and early modern periods explore these ideas from the point of view of four key themes: the situation of emotions within the human mind; the intentionality of emotions and their role in cognition; emotions and action; the role of emotion in self-understanding and the social situation of individuals.”
The volume contains chapters by three CPAMP members: Peter King, Ian Drummond, and Martin Pickavé – and also a paper by this year’s CPAMP faculty visitor Dominik Perler! For more information see here.
