THE EXPRESSION OF THE EMOTIONS IN MAN AND ANIMALS

Charles Darwin. The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals. Appleton and Company: New York Darwin's book The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals , is among the most enduring contributions from 19th century psychology.

The ideas expressed in its pages have persisted, for better or worse, down through the present, in one form or another. Although premised on an unsupportable interpretation of the nature of "expression," it is this idea that permeates the majority of work on emotional experience within psychology. It deals almost entirely with emotional display, but assumes a great deal about the nature of what is being displayed. Its contribution, however, is not limited to works that echo its ideas.

Dewey's critique of Darwin's principles provides no small part of the foundations on which functionalist psychology is built. Similarly, the work plays a very large part in Mead's discussion of the formation of significant symbols, as outlined in the early chapters of Mind, Self and Society.

As Dewey notes, the arguments presented by Darwin may be wrong, but they are compelling. This is one of the best places to start when exploring the foundations of Mead's work. In the interest of simplicity, each chapter is treated like a separate document, accessible through this page. The book is richly illustrated, with woodcuts and photographs. As a result, some chapters are quite large.
