                                                    Bittersweet, Ancient and Modern

                            Mixed Affect in Emotional Experience from Plato to Brain Imaging

Ambivalent emotions, conflicting passions, bittersweet feelings: such experiences are commonplace, but more complex than suggested by ordinary language usage and currently available scientific models. Bittersweet, Ancient and Modern (BAM) is a multidisciplinary hub that brings together philosophers, psychologists, and cognitive scientists to work on mixed affect.
