    Sartre contemplates the human emotional experience by analyzing phenomenological psychology and existentialism. In The Emotions: Outline of a Theory, French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre attempts to understand the role emotions play in the human psyche. Sartre analyzes fear, lust, anguish, and melancholy while asserting that human beings begin to develop emotional capabilities from a very early age, which helps them identify and understand the emotions’ names and qualities later in life.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    For those interested in JPS' philosophy the book still holds some interest. Of course many ideas have come and gone since this book was published, and the research in human emotions has taken a different route than the one JPS is on in this book, but still, his work is interesting to know. However, this product is not at the level Audible has accustomed us with so far. Unfortunately the narrator is not a professional, and there are many stops and goes, and returns, and mistakes, and all together a pitched monotone deliverance that does not help the listener to stay with the text.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Kyle Munley, Nadia May,


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?
