Emotions in Personality and Psychopathology: An Introduction

  • Carroll E. Izard
Part of the Emotions, Personality, and Psychotherapy book series (CISJ)


Speculation and research on the emotions has a long but not consistently venerable history. Many branches of science, as well as religion, philosophy, and law, have some interest in studying and in controlling or regulating these phenomena. In confronting and dealing with the problems of living and adapting to our circumstances, just about everyone is from time to time keenly concerned with the expression, disguise, or suppression of emotions; their effects on our judgment and actions; and their effects, whether expressed or suppressed, on our biological and psychological well-being.
