Human Emotion

Human Emotion
What are emotions? Are feelings like love and fear 'real' or are they artificial labels humans have invented to organize our conscious experience? Do people from all cultures experience the same emotions? Finally, what purpose do emotions serve? Do they get in the way of 'rational' thought or do they serve a purpose? In this seminar, we will explore these questions and cover major theories and methodologies in the exciting new field of emotion in psychology. (PSYC 0105; open to junior and senior psychology majors or by waiver only) 3 hrs. sem.
