Description: Philosophy of emotions is a prominent field of contemporary research. The study of feelings, emotions, moods, and sentiments is detectable throughout the history of Western philosophy, from Aristotle to Descartes, from Hume to Kant. Then, it has acquired prominence within the phenomenological and existentialist traditions, disclosing its valence as one of the key tools for the understanding of human existence. Emotions have been studied by other disciplines too, and a very multidisciplinary approach is now detectable in the field, especially in relation to the developments of cognitive science.
The aim of this special issue of the Journal Aurora (a Brasilian Open Access Journal, indexed in Scopus and Web of Science) is to discuss the new approaches in the field of philosophy of emotions, regarding both the taxonomy of emotions and their role in specific fields of inquiry (as epistemology, ethics, politics, aesthetics, religious studies, etc). Different traditions of thoughts and methodologies are welcomed, and a special interest will be given to those papers that will introduce new lines of investigation.
Please submit your contribution to the Journal editor, Prof. Dr. Léo Peruzzo Júnior, by the 20th of August 2019. This special issue of Aurora will be exclusively in English. For any queries don’t hesitate to contact us.
