Victor S. Johnston,Why We Feel: The Science of Human Emotions
ISBN: 0738203165 | edition 2000 | PDF | 221 pages | 21 mb

How did feelings evolve? How do they develop within us? What is their function, their use to us? How does our nervous system implement them?
These four questions, posed in somewhat different form by the Nobel Prize-winning biologist Niko Tinbergen, propel psychologist Victor Johnston's well-crafted examination of human emotions. Drawing on recent advances in psychology, biology, and the cognitive sciences, he looks into such matters as the role of the emotions in psychological well-being ("the failure to develop an early emotional bond with a single caretaker leads to slow development, withdrawal, depression, and a variety of later developing social problems") and the adaptive advantages–or, at times, disadvantages–of such deep-seated inner feelings as envy and joy.

It seems self-contradictory that one could write tediously about wonder, but religious studies scholar Fuller (Spiritual but Not Religious: Understanding Unchurched America) manages to do just that as he chronicles the study of wonder's evolutionary-adaptive uses in Darwin's The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals and its ethical applications in philosopher Martha Nussbaum's writings on emotions. Wonder opens us to an unseen world beyond ourselves, Fuller observes, permitting us to think of wonder more as a religious sensibility than an emotion. Fuller offers short case studies—of John Muir, William James and Rachel Carson—to show how these three saw the world around them as an ineffable mystery whose organic unity calls for an experience of wonder rather than a cold scientific explanation.
