The main objective of this website is to organize my thoughts. Thinking about emotions has kept me busy for quite some time, but not in a very systematic way. This changed a few years ago. At the time, I got the idea to study Psychology. I still do, with the burning ambition to specialize in affective neuroscience. However, I didn’t get the feeling to make much progress in my thinking about emotions. This subject has occupied my mind with many recurring elements and numerous side roads. Nevertheless, it was an entanglement without beginning nor end. So I decided to work out the recurring items and possibly some of the side roads. Hopefully, in the long run, a clear and consistent picture will arise.
This blog is an attempt to create order in the chaos. At the same time, it’s my intention to approach the emotions as unbiased as possible. Anything that has the potential to shed some light on our subject could have a place here. This may range from thoroughly corroborated scientific theories to certain books and particular works of art. It may also range from general philosophical reflections to personal thoughts, experiences and speculations.
