Product Description


" extraordinarily learned and well-argued account of the ways in which emotions function within our cognitive systems....Oatley's erudite and integrative presentation of his theory of emotions should be a part of every library's psychology collection." Choice

" exceptional work which does more than justice to the cognitive science approach to the emotions." Martin Conway, The Times Higher Education Supplement

"...has many of the characteristics of good literature as well as good science." James R. Averill, Cognition and Emotion

Book Description

Serving a crucial function when the unexpected occurs and when priorities must be set, emotions are shown to be central to the understanding of human action and mental life in a survey that draws upon research in cognitive science as well as other fields.

The Best Out There May 16 2001
By Keith E. Stanovich - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is simply the best book on the psychology of emotions there is. It is written by an esteemed cognitive psychologist who has also written two novels. Thus, this book is scholarly yet a joy to read.
