Virtues & Vices: What is Anger?

Tuesday, April 11, 2017 at 4:30pm to 6:00pm

Dornsife Language Center, THH 309K

What are the ethics of anger? Is anger a passion, and so like other emotions, something that is to controlled or moderated by reason? Or might the free expression of anger in fact have some necessary role in achieving emotional health and well-being? What is the relationship of anger to human happiness, and to our ability to relate to others? Are there particular social and cultural structures which govern how we experience and make sense of anger? Please join us for reflection on the nature of anger and its place in modern ethical debate.
