Human Emotion

Course Description

This course introduces students to a diverse array of theoretical and empirical issues related to the study of human emotion. Some questions the course will address include: What are our emotions? What purpose do they serve? How do emotions relate to our thoughts, memories, and behaviors towards others? What happens when our emotional responses go awry? Although these questions date back to early philosophical texts, only recently have experimental psychologists begun to explore this vast and exciting domain of study. The course will begin by discussing the evolutionary origins of distinct emotions such as love, anger, fear, and disgust. We will ask how emotions might color our cognitive processes such as thinking and memory, the relationship between emotions and the brain, development of emotions in childhood, and how emotions shape our social relationships. We will also consider how these methods can be applied to studying mental illness in both children and adults. We conclude by studying the pursuit of happiness and well-being, trying to understand what makes us happy.
This course is part of a broader educational mission to share the study of human emotion beyond the boundaries of the classroom in order to reach students and teachers alike, both locally and globally, through the use of technology. 
This mission is generously supported by, and in collaboration with, the Yale Office of Digital Dissemination and the Yale College Dean's Office. This series was recorded and produced by Douglas Forbush, Lucas Swineford, and the Yale Broadcasting and Media Center.

Customer Reviews

Balancing too

There is a one star review and the complaint is not about the course but about there being duplicates. A review should be based on the content not something totally unrelated. If you have an issue with something as trivial as duplicates then maybe you should limit your search to the children's section.

Ahhh I took this class and there was a podcast version the whole time??

And I bet Prof. Gruber lectures for this... the actual class was a regular TA parade.

Haven't actually heard / seen the lectures

I just thought I should balance out the review from the person complaining about duplicates. They aren't duplicates, there's a video version and audio only version of each one.
