Lecture: Emotion: The Moving Force of Experience
There is no experience without emotion. Our daily lives, our nightly dreams; our interior realities and outer relationships; our fantasies, myths, and religions; our arts and sciences; careers and investments – all are informed by emotion. From ancestral times to the here and now of today, emotions initiate our actions, infuse our musings, and fashion the narratives of our lived and unlived lives. It is essential that we know and recognize our universal survival-enhancing emotions, and the social emotions of our particular surrounds.
