What are emotions?

Emotions are a core foundation of what makes us human. The capacity for emotion is critical for human vitality. But it also relates directly to the other capacities that are foundational to our flourishing. Emotions do not just happen in our heads; they are embodied. They depend upon our histories, understandings, memories, relationships and ways of life. In this project we seek to understand the intensity and complexity of emotions as you respond to different images of faces, places and objects.
