Emotions and Christ-Shaped Philosophy
by Clifford Williams
Clifford Williams' contribution to the "Christ-Shaped Philosophy" project proposes that the components of Christ-shaped philosophy are somewhat like the components of a child-parent relationship. What must be true of emotions in order for this proposal to be convincing?
The conception of emotions he attempts to employ is robust. A thin conception of emotions would conceive them simply as high-pitched passion, as unstable, coming and going independently of our wills, as disruptive to our true aims in life, and cheap.
With a robust conception of emotion, large parts of the inner terrain can be explained in terms of emotions, including the key components of Christ-shaped philosophy.
