Lisa Feldman Barrett has revolutionized our understanding of emotions and the brain. Her theory of constructed emotion holds that emotions are not universal and vary from culture to culture. In Barrett's theory the human brain creates emotions in order to keep the organism alive and well by monitoring both the internal and external environment. Join Dr. Kent Bottles to discuss why we get mad and sad living in America. When one understands human emotions better, one can live with hope in a rather challenging environment. Lunch is included.
