ABSTRACT
The article states that in academic circles in the U.S. the emotions are a hot topic, a rapidly growing and far-flung industry that has over the last 15 years attracted people from different disciplines in ever accelerating numbers, many of whom have been working unknown to one another in parallel lines of research. Thus far scholars in the fields of philosophy, anthropology, and sociology have contributed the most to such research, but in history, literary studies, and cultural studies too work has recently app eared that signals an increasingly common interest in the emotions.
