Episode Details

Emotions chart the landscape of life—the highs, the lows, and the periods in between. Paul Ekman, Dacher Keltner, Bob Levenson, and others pre-eminent in the field examine the distinguishing characteristics of emotion and probe such long-debated issues as: which comes first, physiological arousal or emotional experience; the relationship between thinking and emotion and the measurement of emotion; the impact of culture and gender on emotion, even the question of what is or is not a basic emotion. Anger, forgiveness, and happiness are explored in greater depth.
