Emotions of Animals and Humans: Comparative Perspectives (The Science of the Mind)

Editat de Shigeru Watanabe, Stan Kuczaj
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 20 Sep 2014
This book takes a multidisciplinary approach to emotion, with contributions from biologists, psychologists, neuroscientists, robot engineers, and artists. A wide range of emotional phenomena is discussed, including the notion that humans’ sophisticated sensibility, as evidenced by our aesthetic appreciation of the arts, is based at least in part on a basic emotional sensibility that is found in young children and perhaps even some non-human animal species.  As a result, this book comprises a unique comparative perspective on the study of emotion. A number of chapters consider emotions in a variety of animal groups, including fish, birds, and mammals. Other chapters expand the scope of the book to humans and robots. Specific topics covered in these chapters run the gamut from lower-level emotional activity, such as emotional expression, to higher-level emotional activity, such as altruism, love, and aesthetics. Taken as a whole, the book presents manifold perspectives on emotion and provides a solid foundation for future multidisciplinary research on the nature of emotions.

“The interesting and intriguing title of this book will tempt readers who wish to broaden their personal perspectives. … The book focuses in particular on the nature of emotions and the possibility of emotions in preverbal children and nonverbal animals. … the book will be of real value as a platform for researchers to understand the individual perspectives … .” (D. J. Williams, ACM Computing Reviews, January, 2013)
