Moral Emotions builds upon the philosophical theory of persons begun in Phenomenology and Mysticism and marks a new stage of phenomenology. Author Anthony J. Steinbock finds personhood analysing key emotions, called moral emotions. Moral Emotions offers a systematic account of the moral emotions, described here as pride, shame, and guilt as emotions of self-given's; repentance, hope, and despair as emotions of possibility; and trusting, loving, and humility as emotions of otherness. The author argues these reveal basic structures of interpersonal experience. By exhibiting their own kind of cognition and evidence, the moral emotions not only help to clarify the meaning of person, they reveal novel concepts of freedom, critique, and normativity. As such, they are able to engage our contemporary social imaginaries at the impasse of modernity and postmodernity.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[Moral Emotions] develops a theory of the human person that offers a richer understanding of people as interpersonal, and argues for a role for emotions in civic life and political discourses. Steinbock's phenomenological descriptions are compelling, and his argument is very clear and accessible." --CHOICE
"Moral Emotions is an important work on human personhood, phenomenology of the emotions, and the social imaginary...a unique, detailed phenomenological account of the emotions." --Faith and Philosophy
