In this module you will explore what kind of mental states emotions are. It addresses the following questions: Are emotions bodily sensations? How do they relate to cognition? Are emotions necessarily felt, or can they be unconscious? And what is the relation between emotions, moods, and other types of affective feelings? The module presents some of the answers that philosophers have provided (with some excursions into physiological and psychological research).
There are no prerequisites for taking this module.
