Part Three: Emotions and Questions of the Self

Dr Irina Kuznetsova

Contemporary debates on the self often overlook emotion, even though in the past forty years the study of emotion has emerged as a research area in its own right in philosophy, psychology, developmental psychology, psychiatry and neurobiology. This talk will consider what contemporary theories of emotion, such as the leading theory of emotions as judgements, and the findings of the latest neurobiological research on emotion can contribute to the philosophy of self and consciousness and to the classical Indian debate on the existence and nature of self.
