We live our lives through our emotions, writes Robert Solomon, and it is our emotions that give our lives meaning. What interests or fascinates us, who we love, what angers us, what moves us, what bores us--all of this defines us, gives us character, constitutes who we are.In True to Our Feelings , Solomon illuminates the rich life of the emotions--why we don't really understand them, what they really are, and how they make us human and give meaning to life. Emotions have recently become a highly fashionable area of research in the sciences, with brain imaginguncovering valuable clues as to how we experience our feelings. But while Solomon provides a guide to this cutting-edge research, as well as to what others--philosophers and psychologists--have said on the subject, he also emphasizes the personal and ethical character of our emotions. He shows thatemotions are not something that happen to us, nor are they irrational in the literal sense--rather, they are judgements we make about the world, and they are strategies for living in it. Fear, anger, love, guilt, jealousy, compassion--they are all essential to our values, to living happily,healthily, and well. Solomon highlights some of the dramatic ways that emotions fit into our ethics and our sense of the good life, how we can make our emotional lives more coherent with our values and be more 'true to our feelings' and cultivate emotional integrity.… (més)

**Dreamweaver's Dilemma** is a short story by *Lois McMaster Bujold*, set vaguely in the same universe as her Vorkosigan series. It's nice enough, and shows again her mastery at painting realistic scenarios in unfamiliar worlds, complete with a story arc, but also everyday details. At the same time, it didn't particularly grip me, the pacing was a bit off, so it was just a nice afternoon read. ( )

short stories (dreamweaver's dilemma and mountains of mourning) plus various essays. Some background info as well.

Not bad at all. I enjoyed the essays more than the stories in it, but it was all pretty good. And I learned more about the Barrayar universe, and how Bujold thinks about it...very interesting, particularly since she's written more in that universe since the essays about it were written. Fun. ( )

I edited this book, so of course I think it is great! I made it the book every Bujold fan would want as I am a rabid Bujold fan myself and wanted the stories and articles from magazines and a couple that will never be published anywhere else (like the title story)and an interview about her life and writing. I have since brought out more Bujold books from NESFA Press (the early novels, never in hardcover before), but I am still pretty happy with this one - and it IS a must have for the Bujold fan, even if you don't want anything but the stories.
