Summary

Building on the vivid account of the emotions in his 2003 book on the subject, Robert C. Roberts now extends his analysis to moral life and explains how emotions pervade ethical life, affecting our judgments, actions, relationships and personal wellbeing, and expressing our moral character, for better or worse.

Emotions in the Moral Life Summary

Emotions in the Moral Life by Robert C. Roberts (Baylor University, Texas)

Robert C. Roberts first presented his vivid account of emotions as 'concern-based construals' in his book Emotions: An Essay in Aid of Moral Psychology (Cambridge, 2003). In this new book he extends that account to the moral life. He explores the ways in which emotions can be a basis for moral judgments, how they account for the deeper moral identity of actions we perform, how they are constitutive of morally toned personal relationships like friendship, enmity, collegiality and parenthood, and how pleasant and unpleasant emotions interact with our personal wellbeing (eudaimonia). He then sketches how, by means of their moral dimensions, emotions participate in our virtues and vices, and for better or worse, express our moral character. His rich study will interest a wide range of readers working on virtue ethics, moral psychology and emotion theory.
