Sample text

With Hume we feel the background influence of Newtonian thinking. Both the color theory with its blendings and primary colors—blue and red making purple, yellow plus blue making green—and the composition of forces in motion serve as models for how the energies of the inner world are compounded into nuanced and interrelated families of states. The excessive number of these metaphors—families, compounds, colors, vectors of forces in motion—are themselves the sign of improvisation and the absence of a clear causal notion at the heart of such descriptions.

It also seems clear to me that in no way should what we feel when we are in the state of mourning or grief be seen as an experience related to, let alone opposite to, the experience of falling in love or feeling delirious joy at the birth of a child.

If fear is the expectation of some future harm or injury, then hope, the expectation of some future good, might seem to be its opposite. The Stoic system of the passions made opposites of fear and desire because both attend to a future experience of an object, the one with the expectation of pleasure, the other with the expectation of suffering or distress. Once outside the frame of these acts of definition, any concrete experience of anger seems to have little to do with concrete experiences of benevolence.
