1The Science of Non-Human Emotions: In this course, we will survey scientific accounts of emotion and interrogate their philosophical edges. We will be particularly concerned with attempts to study emotions in nonhuman animals, but will also include a module on emotions and artificial intelligence. We will examine the contrast between dimensional and discrete accounts of emotions as separate systems, looking at the interplay between research on humans and that on other animals. We will address the extent to which scientific questions about emotions can be addressed while remaining neutral about any associated conscious experiences, as well as being open to revisions in working definitions and the introduction of new methods of assessment.
