What are emotions? How do they affect your relationships, your well-being, and your work–life balance? And why study emotions scientifically, anyway?

 With a long evolutionary history, emotions are crucial to our survival. They are central to how we experience the world, establishing a background and foreground to our lives. Emotional wisdom can help us achieve greater health, happiness, success, and connection to those around us.

 In this engaging audio course, you can explore the fascinating science of emotions with Vassar College’s Randolph (Randy) Cornelius. The author of The Science of Emotion: Research and Tradition in the Psychology of Emotion, Professor Cornelius is an expert on the history of emotion research, conceptions of emotions in popular culture, and close relationships. Over the course of 15 lectures, the insights you’ll gain will enrich your emotional intelligence.

 Each lecture begins with a true story involving emotions, many drawn from Prof. Cornelius’s personal experience. A semi-professional musician, surfer, and collage artist, Prof. Cornelius is a singularly inspiring guide to the series. You’ll love getting to know him as you listen along.

 Prof. Cornelius concludes on a surprising and fascinating note. Zooming out from the individual to the global scale, he offers hope that we can use what we know about emotions to cope positively with large-scale events in the world.

Randolph (Randy) Cornelius is an expert on human emotions and emotional expression. He is Professor of Psychological Science at Vassar College, where teaches courses in Psychological Science as well as American Studies and Environmental Studies. He is the author of The Science of Emotion: Research and Tradition in the Psychology of Emotion (Prentice-Hall, 1996) and the co-editor, with Ad Vingerhoets, of Adult Crying: A Biopsychosocial Approach (Philadelphia: Taylor and Francis, 2001).

Prof. Cornelius studies the history of research on emotions, conceptions of emotions in American popular culture, and close relationships. For several years, he has sought to understand the social functions of weeping. Studying the signal value of human tears and the effects that crying has on other people, he has been developing an evolutionary theory of weeping that focuses on tears as a type of communicative display. His forthcoming book will take up emotions and human nature.
