Literature and the emotions: Hazlitt, Stendhal

Published in Reboul, A. Mind, Values, and Metaphysics: Springer. 2014
Abstract Succesfull literature offers rich descriptions of emotions. Hazlitt and Stendhal, like Robert Musil, produced important theories of emotions, while being careful about the difference between sentiment and sentimentalism. They believed in the cognitive value of the arts, and stressed the importance of comparison and thought experiments in the novel and in the essay as the way of conjecturing the possible.
