How We Feel, by Giovanni Frazzetto

by stephenpalmersf

An interesting read, for sure, and well written, but some things to be disappointed with: trotting out the formula that emotions affect reason (ie negatively), and the usual stuff about crying as a state of “confusion” and “paralysis”, when actually the opposite is true. Also, an empty, bland and very disappointing final chapter. But full marks for teasing out the importance of the communicative importance of emotion. A welcome book, then, but one to argue with.
