How do you feel?
Our relationship with the world and each other is infused with feeling. Our emotional lives are enthrallingly complex. We don't always know why we are feeling the way we do, why we behave in certain ways or why our emotions are telling us the opposite of what reason might recommend. The human being has been described as a 'bundle of emotions'. With this book you will begin to unpick this bundle. And, perhaps, learn to know yourself better.
The Book of Emotions will:
- Help you understand your own feelings with games, questionnaires, psychological tests and charts.
- Explore what the history, science and philosophy of emotions demonstrates about why you feel the way you do.
- Reveal unexpected truths about why disgust is so important to our evolution, where in the body you feel love or sadness and the relationship between the mind and the body.
- Explore how art reflects inner emotions.
The Book of Emotions will entertain, inform, surprise and, above all, it will involve you. Playful, provocative and a visual delight, it will enhance your emotional intelligence, fine-tune your feelings about your feelings -- and may well change your life.
