The Moral Psychology of Anger is the first comprehensive study of
the moral psychology of anger from a philosophical perspective. In
light of the recent revival of interest in emotions in philosophy
and the current social and political interest in anger, this
collection provides an inclusive view of anger from a variety of
philosophical perspectives. The authors explore the nature of
anger, explain its resilience in our emotional lives and normative
frameworks, and examine what inhibits and encourages thoughts,
feelings, and expressions of anger. The volume also examines rage,
anger's cousin, and examines in what ways rage is a moral emotion,
what black rage is and how it is policed in our society; how
berserker rage is limited and problematic for the contemporary
military; and how defenders of anger respond to classical and
contemporary arguments that expressing anger is always destructive
and immoral. This volume provides arguments for and against the
value of anger in our ethical lives and in politics through a
combination of empirical psychological and philosophical methods.
This authors approach these questions and aims from a historical,
phenomenological, empirical, feminist, political, and
