“The emotions have always been of central concern to men. In every endeavor, in every major human enterprise, the emotions are somehow involved. Almost every great philosopher from Aristotle to Spinoza, from Kant to Dewey, from Bergson to Russell has been concerned with the nature of emotion and has speculated and theorized about its origin, expressions, effects, its place in the economy of human life. Theologians have recognized the significance of certain emotions in connection with religious experience and have made the training of emotions a central, if implicit, part of religious training.

Writers, artists, and musicians have always attempted to appeal to the emotions, to affect and to move the audience through symbolic communication. And the development in the last half century of psychoanalysis, clinical psychology, and psychosomatic medicine has brought the role of emotion in health and disease sharply to our attention (Plutchik, 1962, pp. 3-4).”
