Note: Lisa Feldman Barrett has written a book about a new revolutionary view of the nature of human emotions. The book is HOW EMOTIONS ARE MADE: The Secret Life of the Brain. It was published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2017 (i-xv, 425 pages) and it should be read and discussed throughout the Humanist Galaxy.

The name of the new theory about human emotions is "Constructed Emotion." The idea states that your emotions are constructed (built) in the moment, by core systems that interact across your whole brain, aided by a lifetime of learning.

This new theory means that you play a much greater role in your own emotional life than you were ever told or may have ever thought. The book answers many questions about human emotions, including:"
    [1] Why do emotions feel automatic?

    [2] Does rational thought really control emotion?

    [3] How does emotion affect disease?

    [4] How can you make your children more emotionally intelligent?
