The Foundations of Human and Animal Emotions - Jaak Panksepp
Listening to JP is like tilting the mind. HEUREKA!
His approach to neuroscience and emotion is vitalizing to say the least. His is looking for the basic emotions that are situated in the brain itself and shared by the living. He has coined them as 7, trying to sidestep definitions built upon language.
The seven are: 1.CARE 2. SEEKING 3. PLAY 4. LUST 5. GRIEF/PANIC (FOR CHILDREN) 6. FEAR 7. RAGE
I suggest you take time to look at these 3 lectures. One short, two longer.
