Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Content:
Since the mid to late 1990s, there has been a resurgence of philosophical and interdisciplinary interest in the emotions.

Methods:
* focused readings of key articles and book chapters
* individual and group presentations in seminars
* mini-lectures by seminar leader
* detailed critical discussion of issues, arguments and concepts
* writing an essay

Aims:
Students will learn how to:
* convey key philosophical concepts and positions, relating to the nature and role of emotion, feeling and mood
* summarise and critically discuss the arguments of others
* formulate, set out and defend their own philosophical positions concerning emotion, feeling and mood
* give structured presentations
* write an essay in the style of a professional journal article
