Emotions in Philosophy. A Short Introduction

author: Andrzej Dąbrowski,
In recent decades, there has been a renewed attention to the emotions amongst
scientists of different disciplines: psychology, psychiatry, neurobiology,
cognitive science, computer science, sociology, economics, and many others.
There are many research centers and scientific journals devoted to affective
states already existing. However, studies of emotion have a very long history –
especially in philosophy (anthropology, ethics, aesthetics, epistemology, and
rhetoric). Philosophers first raised many important questions about emotions
and their contribution to the discovery of the nature of emotions is very
important. The aim of the article is the reconstruction of the views on emotions
of particular thinkers in history of philosophy.

Ancient Doctrines of Passions: Plato and Aristotle

author: Agnieszka Iskra-Paczkowska, Przemysław Paczkowski,
The subject of this essay is a discussion of the doctrines of emotions of Plato
and Aristotle. According to both them it is impossible to oust the passions from
the good, i.e. happy life. On the contrary, emotions are an important
component of human excellence. We investigate this question with reference to
Plato’s doctrine of the soul and his concept of a perfect life, and Aristotle’s
ethics, poetics and rhetoric.
