Philosophically explores the topic of emotional depth.
This book philosophically explores the topic of emotional depth. The insights of James J. Gibson and Maurice Merleau-Ponty on the nature of perceived depth are compared and then extended to the dynamics of emotional experience and alterations in self-understanding.
Sue L. Cataldi is Professor in the Philosophy Department at Moorhead State University.
"After a decade or two of dominance by behaviorist thinkers, followed by another decade or two of dominance by cognitive theorists, the time is ripe for study of the emotions (and affections in general) to assume center stage. Much evidence indicates that this is indeed happening and Cataldi's work appears just in time. She is a gifted thinker, with tremendous focus and uncanny writing skills." — Robert Marrone, California State University, Sacramento
