Default Re: Emotions versus Reason?

Alex, While I'm digesting your last concept-rich post, I found 2 books by Prinz that might do the job.

Gut Reactions: A Perceptual Theory of Emotion (Philosophy of Mind Series) by Jesse J. Prinz (Hardcover - Aug 12, 2004) $39.95

Furnishing the Mind: Concepts and Their Perceptual Basis (Representation and Mind) by Jesse J. Prinz (Paperback - Sep 1, 2004) $24.95

There's also a Wolfgang Prinz but Jesse seems to be the one you had in mind.

Have you read both of these? Is one more on-topic for this discussion? Or, is one more suitable for my level of un-education? Or, should I read Sterelny first maybe?

These are expensive books but I just got an Amazon gift cert from my son for my birthday. Perfect timing it seems.

Margaret
