Re: Passion: the Journal of the European Philosophical Society for the Study of Emotions

I am delighted to learn this journal is open-access. Anyone else interested in this subject matter may find my compilation on emotions helpful in their research (despite its constraints), as it is in keeping with the stated aims and purposes of the journal, although I would have liked to have seen mention of the relevance of the philosophy, science and therapeutic approach to the emotions in psychoanalysis which I think is as important, indeed, perhaps more so, than the “(cognitive) science of emotion.” Here is the aforementioned bibliography: The Emotions: a transdisciplinary bibliography.
