Book description
One of Sartre's early works, which indicates how his psychological interests influenced the existential phenomenology that developed into Being and Nothingness, this work argues that no matter how involuntary we may imagine them to be, emotions are fundamentally a matter of choice. An influence on recent work on philosophy of emotion, notably Robert Solomon's.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 080650904X, Paperback)

Sartre contemplates the human emotional experience by analyzing phenomenological psychology and existentialism
In The Emotions: Outline of a Theory, French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre attempts to understand the role emotions play in the human psyche. Sartre analyzes fear, lust, anguish, and melancholy while asserting that human beings begin to develop emotional capabilities from a very early age, which helps them identify and understand the emotions’ names and qualities later in life.

Helping to complete the circle of Sartre’s many theories on existentialism, this vital piece of literature is a must-have for the philosopher-in-training’s collection.

PHILOSOPHY. The emotions lie at the heart of the existentialist philosophy Sartre championed and in this brilliant short work we Sartre at his best: insightful, controversial and witty.
