Review of Metaphysics 52 (1):143-144 (1998)

Susan Feagin positions Reading with Feeling at the crossroads of aesthetics, philosophical psychology, and moral philosophy. Her principal concern is the activity of appreciating fiction. However, she relies on work in philosophical psychology regarding emotion to develop her views about appreciation, and her aesthetic account of the role of emotion in appreciation has significant implications for ethical theory, which she adumbrates at the end of her book.
