In Defense of Sentimentality

Robert C. Solomon

Philosophy has as much to do with feelings as it does with thoughts and thinking. Philosophy, accordingly, requires not only emotional sensitivity but an understanding of the emotions, not as curious but marginal psychological phenomena but as the very substance of life.

In this, the second book in a series devoted to his work on the emotions, Robert Solomon presents a defence of the emotions and of sentimentality against the background of what he perceives as a long history of abuse in philosophy, social thought, art, and literary criticism.
