Not Passion's Slave : Emotions and Choice
In this book, Solomon reopens the classic debate about the role of sentimentality in art and literature, and defends the often-neglected role of compassion in deliberations of justice, in management theory, and in education. Looking at the philosophical significance of the emotions, he defends the role of love as a touchstone of ethical behaviour, and demonstrates how emotions give meaning to and play an essential role in our lives.
