    schema:description ""Day-to-day life is a sequence of emotional states: hope, disappointment, irritation, anger, affection, envy, pride, embarrassment, joy, sadness, and many more. We know intuitively that these states express deep things about our character and our view of the world. But what are emotions, and why are they so important to us? In one of the most extensive investigations of the emotions ever published, Robert C. Roberts develops a novel conception of what emotions are and then applies it to a large range of types of emotion and related phenomena. In so doing, he lays the foundations for a deeper understanding of our evaluative judgments, our actions, our personal relationships, and our fundamental well-being. Aimed principally at philosophers and psychologists, this book will certainly be accessible to readers in other disciplines such as religion and anthropology."--Publisher's description."@en ;
