Katherine Peil reveals some of the fascinating discoveries of her lengthy inquiry into the nature of emotion. She talks of its function and evolution, and refers to its physiochemical and informational expressions. She reminds us that all living creatures experience pleasure and pain, and that good and bad feelings work together to serve self-regulation.
