44th Annual Meeting
Hosted by Fordham University

September 12-14, 2019

Affect / Emotion / Feeling

Affect / Emotion / Feeling

“We must reject that prejudice which makes ‘inner realities’ out of love, hate, or anger, leaving them accessible to one single witness: the person who feels them. Anger, shame, hate, and love are not psychic facts hidden at the bottom of another’s consciousness… They exist on this face or in those gestures, not hidden behind them…. [E]motion is not a psychic, internal fact but rather a variation in our relations with others and the world which is expressed in our bodily attitude.”

- Merleau-Ponty, “The Film and the New Psychology”

Keynote Speakers

Matthew Ratcliffe, University of York
Alia Al-Saji, McGill University
