|Emotion Studies: Directions in History, Science and Humanities
|International Management Review
|Human emotions constitute a complex interaction of biological and cultural cues. These are interpreted by an individual's mind and body, and may or may not manifest through behavior. The paper briefly reviews the study of emotion, or affect, as it has evolved through the history of the West. The focus is on an interdisciplinary overlapping of humanities, arts, sciences, and philosophy. With advances in scientific fields such as neuroscience, complimented by stronger scholarship in social, psychological, and cultural studies, the most recent affective turn might be the stepping off point for the emergence of a sustainable affective science. The paper touches on a selection of theories and arguments headed in that direction.
