This Book Has Feelings Summary

This Book Has Feelings: Adventures in Instinct and Emotion by Michael Picard

This is an exciting and highly accessible introduction to the emotions in philosophy and psychology. The way that we feel is governed by two separate and often conflicting dispositions: instinct and emotion. Instincts are inherent and unlearned; they provide us with deeply ingrained patterns of response to different kinds of stimuli. Emotions are subjective and personal; they govern our thoughts and behaviour, and are inextricably linked to our perception of personality, mood and temperament. Using a blend of psychology and philosophy, "This Book Has Feelings" looks at these unique facets of the human psyche. It reveals the fascinating things they tell us about ourselves and profiles the amazing minds that have unlocked the secrets of our consciousness. Packed with real-life examples and the latest theories, this fascinating book constantly challenges the reader to examine his or her own instincts and emotions using a variety of thought experiments, mind maps, exercises and puzzles.
