The Ancient Emotion of Disgust

Donald Lateiner and Dimos Spatharas

Emotions of the Past

  • No previous study or collection of essays has been devoted to the ancient emotion of disgust
  • Disgust has become a battleground for philosophers and legal theorists discussing whether judges and jurors' reactions of disgust are relevant to convicting and sentencing heinous offenders
  • Novelty of subject matter has potential to attract interdisciplinary scholars and readers within the Humanities spectrum
