This volume brings together new analytic and continental philosophic work on the nature of affectivity.
Areas represented include philosophy of mind, epistemology, and philosophy of language.
But such traditional designations fail to do justice to the new ground broken here.
Topics include the nature of moods and emotions, the character of images, the relations between affective states and representational content/intentional states.
Particular affective phenomena explored include shame, guilt, regret, grief, and alienation.
