Emotions are an intimate, inescapable part of our daily lives and yet they can often seem confusing or mysterious. Across history, religious leaders, philosophers and scientists of the human mind have depicted emotions as unpredictable, dangerous, to be avoided or at least controlled. But does human emotion really deserve such a bad rap?
Sara Waters, assistant professor of human development, will explore the science of what our emotions really are, where they come from and whether they are truly a help or a hindrance. She will talk about how we can manage our own emotional experiences and the importance of emotions in social interactions and close relationships.
