True to Our Feelings

What Our Emotions Are Really Telling Us

Robert C. Solomon

True to Our Feelings illuminates the rich life of the emotions--why we don't really understand them, what they really are, and how they give meaning to life. Solomon provides a guide to cutting-edge scientific research, as well as to what philosophers and psychologists have said on the subject, but he also emphasizes the personal and ethical character of our emotions. He shows that emotions are not something that happen to us, nor are they irrational in the literal sense--rather, they are judgments we make about the world, and they are strategies for living in it. Fear, anger, love--they are all essential to our values, to living happily, healthily, and well.
