Présentation de l'éditeur
In Darwin and Facial Expression, Paul Ekman and a cast of other notable scientists, consider the central concepts and key sources of information in Darwin’s work on emotional expression. Darwin claimed that we cannot understand human emotional expression without first understanding the emotional expressions of animals, as our emotional expressions are in large part determined by our evolution. Not only are there similarities between man and certain other animals in the appearance of some emotional expressions, but the principles which explain why a particular emotional expression occurs with a particular emotion apply across species. This book illuminates Darwin's understanding with the light of present scientific knowledge. This new Malor edition contains new and updated references.
