  3. Sophie Rietti (2009). Emotional Intelligence and Moral Agency: Some Worries and a Suggestion. Philosophical Psychology 22 (2):143 – 165.
    Emotional intelligence (EI) has been put forward as a distinctive kind of intelligence and, by popularizers such as Daniel Goleman, as an indicator of moral and life skills. Critics, however, have been concerned EI-testing measures conformity or the ability to manipulate own or others' emotions, and relies on a problematic assumption that there are definitive, universal “right” answers when it comes to feelings. Such worries have also been raised about the original concept developed by Peter Salovey and John D. Mayer; (...)

(c) ‘Thick’ psychological realism, exemplified by Elizabeth Anscombe, where a conception of human nature does (...)

  6. Sophie Rietti (2008). Emotional Intelligence as Educational Goal: A Case for Caution. Journal of Philosophy of Education 42 (3-4):631-643.
    Originally conceptualised as a set of capacities for understanding and managing emotions, emotional intelligence (EI) has become associated, mainly due to the work of Daniel Goleman, with life success skills, prosocial attitudes and moral and civic virtues.
