Does anger impede political progress or is it essential for change? Does love make us biased or is it the foundation of ethical thinking? Might shame alter not merely our perception of the world, but the very world itself? Reason is often contrasted with emotion, but what if emotion is essential for understanding traditional philosophical ideas? And how did we end up thinking that reason could ever do without emotion?

About the author

Forum for Philosophy

Forum for Philosophy is a non-profit organization promoting philosophy. We host events, produce podcasts, and publish an essay series to showcase the work of contemporary academic philosophers from all philosophical traditions, often in conversation with each other and with academics from other disciplines. In all of our activities, we promote thought-provoking discussion of science, art, and politics from a philosophical perspective.
