Sánchez-Migallón, Sergio; Giménez-Amaya, José Manuel. “Phenomenological analysis of the emotional life and a note on its neurobiological correlation”, Scientia et Fides, Vol. 2, n. 2, 2014, pp.47-66.
The neurobiology of affection is becoming established as a new sub-discipline that focuses on the study and understanding of human emotional experience. It is a scientific discipline that has emerged from neurosciences, on the basis that we can now only advance towards a global understanding of human emotions and of their altera- tions by widening the horizons and methods available to study the emotional life. Here, we present the current contrast between the phenomenological and the neuroscientific analysis of emotions. We propose that it is necessary to maintain an interdisciplinary dialogue between these two approaches and we think that this complementation will be especially beneficial for the field of clinical neuroscience and anthropology.
