Review of Daniel Kelly: Yuck! The Nature and Moral Significance of Disgust: Cambridge MA: MIT Press, 2011, 194 pp. $30.00/£20.95 [Book Review]
Neuroethics 6 (1):221-223 (2013)
AbstractPerhaps the most remarkable feature about this book is the effort made by its author in order to shed light on the most intriguing question that surrounds disgust: how is it possible for disgust to be so flexible with its objects? This book is highly recommended for those readers interested in the latest and most exciting aspects of current scholarship on the study of the emotions. Readers too who are interested on evolutionary psychology, moral psychology or neuroethics will find this book stimulating. However, it should be noted that perhaps it may not be liked for readers allergic to evolutionary approaches and the vocabulary of cognitive science
