Course Description

The seminar will examine the relation of emotions to evaluative judgment. The first part of the seminar will study the views of John McDowell and David Wiggins, on which evaluative judgment consists in apprehending values in objects through our emotional responses to those objects. The second part of the seminar will test these views against recent philosophical work on the nature of emotions.
