Log-in for full text

Beginning with an account of the politics of staking a claim to emotional universality among humans, the chapter details ways in which the history of emotions can both speak to and undermine psychological and affect-theory approaches that would deterministically connect emotions and facial expressions. The chapter explores the ways in which ‘basic emotions’ models have been superseded by both neuroscientific insights about neuro-plasticity and by practice theory. This is particularly exemplified by a close study of what happens when we experience ‘empathy’.
