Lisa Feldman Barrett, a leading analyst of the dimensional view of affective states (and a powerhouse of fascinating research and publications), has a new book out, and it looks like a must read.

Ok so it got mixed reviews in the Globe & Mail, but she is as close as it comes to god in the world of emotions,  and it was very nicely covered in an interview in Radio Boston on the BBC World Service this morning.

In searching for the latter just now, I also stumbled across this great piece on lexical gaps and alien emotions: I just love these, not least as reminders of how little we may ever understand animals.
