I am happy to announce that my new book just came out:
METAPHOR AND EMOTION. Language, Culture, and Body in Human Feeling.
New York: Cambridge University Press.
The main difference between this book and my previous work is that in
study the emphasis is on emotions in general and the larger issues
with them, and not on particular emotion concepts.
It relies heavily on Len Talmy's work on force dynamics, and with its
it tries to place emotion in the larger context of the human mind. It
takes up the issue of universality vs. language-specificness in
conceptualization (in two chapters). The book contains 10 chapters
