The article discusses the growing interest of historians in the subject of human emotions and the historical study of emotion, as of the 1990s and 2000s, with a focus on the concept of emotions as cognitive process and the work of Norbert Elias. Topics discussed include recent reception of the work "The Civilizing Process," produced by Elias in the 1930s; the relationship between Elias' work and current work related to the emotions in social sciences and collective psychology, and the assessment of the history of emotions from the perspective of medieval studies.
