A Sentimentalist Theory of the Mind

Michael Slote

  • Argues that emotion is on conceptual grounds involved in all human thought and action, rather than merely being causally connected with other aspects of the mind.
  • Delves into what is distinctive about human minds.
  • Investigates the sheer variety of human motives in an innovative way and argues that the variety of non-selfish human motives is far greater than has been realized.
  • Argues that emotions play a central role in this complex psychology.
