The laws of emotion.


The laws of emotion.

Frijda, Nico H.

Lawrence Erlbaum


352 pages




To better understand the underlying psychological mechanisms of emotion, Frijda (psychology, Amsterdam U., emeritus) addresses several unanswered problems in emotion theory as well as previously neglected topics such as the determinants of emotional intensity, the duration of emotions, and sexual emotions. He touches on both evolutionary and neuroscientific explanations. The text concludes with Frijda's insights into the complex emotional domains of sex, revenge and the need to commemorate past events.
