Beginning with an account of the politics of staking a claim to emotional universality among humans, this 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 The chapter explores the ways in which ‘basic emotions’ models have been superseded by both neuroscientific insights about neuroplasticity and by practice theory. This is particularly exemplified by a close study of what happens when we experience ‘empathy’.
