“Emotions engender emotions. And, working with emotions in the academic context is a very serious and complex endeavor because they put the researcher (he or she) in the challenging situation of recognizing themselves as embodied subjects who also feel. This is probably one of the reasons why they too often receive insufficient attention—both as objects of study and philosophical inquiry. But emotions are important inquiries of study and they are significant as a way of knowing, creating and being in the world. The collection that Allison B. Wolf, Catalina González Quintero and Ana María Forero Angel have put together is a brave and wonderful example of how remarkable, stimulating and productive the challenge of taking emotions seriously in philosophy, anthropology and in daily life can be.”
