Description - The Mind's Affective Life by Gemma Fiumara Corradi
Our thoughts and behaviour are shaped by both our emotions and reason - yet until recently most of the literature analysing thought has concentrated largely on philosophical reasoning and neglected emotions. The Mind's Affective Life is a refreshing and innovative examination of the relationship between feeling and thinking. Drawing on contemporary psychoanalysis, philosophy, feminist theory and recent innovations in neuroscience to argue that in order to understand thought, we need to consider not only both emotional and rational aspects of thought but also the complex interactions between them.The Mind's Affective Life will inspire students and practitioners of philosophy, psychoanalysis, psychotherapy and women's studies, as well as anyone interested in the interaction of feeling and thinking.
