Die aktuell viel diskutierte Frage nach dem Verhältnis von Gefühl und Vernunft wurde von Philosophen des 17. Jahrhunderts mit solcher Komplexität erörtert, dass ihre Entwürfe bis heute eine Inspirationsquelle für die Erforschung der Emotionalität des Geistes sind. Der Band bietet sowohl vielfältige Analysen der Theorien von Descartes, Spinoza und Leibniz als auch Untersuchungen zu den Entwürfen von Hobbes, Henry extra, Anne Conway, l. a. Rochefoucauld, Christina von Schweden, Malebranche, Fènelon, Shaftesbury und Émilie du Châtelet und schließt mit einem Ausblick auf das 18. Jahrhundert bis zu Kant. Indem der Fokus auf die affektiven Komponenten in Erkenntnisprozessen und auf die Grenzbestimmungen von Emotionen und Vernunft gelegt wird, ermöglicht dieser Band neue Einsichten in die Vielfalt und Bedeutsamkeit der philosophischen Reflexion über Emotionen in der Frühen Neuzeit. Mit Beiträgen von Susan James, Denis Kambouchner, Christia Mercer, Gianni Paganini, Amelie Rorty, Theo Verbeek u.a.
