Ponder, Issue #10

Today we ask you ponder …

“The ease with which we experience emotions, and the effortlessness with which we see emotions in others, doesn’t mean that each emotion has a distinct pattern in the face, body or brain. Instead of asking where emotions are or what bodily patterns define them, we would do better to abandon such essentialism and ask the more revealing question, ‘How does the brain construct these incredible experiences?’”
