Abstract

The paper argues that a careful consideration of the internal relations between the expression of emotion, say, “I am afraid”, and the description of one’s situation, “It is dangerous”, offers valuable insight into the moral and interpersonal aspects necessary to meaningfully describe our emotional life. It also opens for a more nuanced understanding of the kind of reasoning into which we enter when we criticize another person’s emotion or our own.
