A spectacular compendium of ideas, interactive games, provocations, tests and tricks that explore the world of what you feel and why. Our relationship with the world and each other is infused with feeling. Our emotional lives are enthrallingly complex. We don’t always know why we are feeling the way we do, why we behave in certain ways or why our emotions are telling us the opposite of what reason might recommend. The human being has been described as a ‘bundle of emotions’. With this book you will begin to unpick this bundle. And, perhaps, learn to know yourself better. Bringing together psychotherapists, artists, historians, poets and you – the book unpacks your emotional baggage, finds play in your everyday feelings and pleasure where you least expect it. THE BOOK OF EMOTIONS will: help you understand your own feelings with games, questionnaires, psychological tests and charts • Explore what the history, science and philosophy of emotions demonstrates about why you feel the way you do • Reveal unexpected truths about why disgust is so important to our evolution, where in the body you feel love or sadness and the relationship between mind and body • Explore how art reflects inner emotions.
