I'm merely trying to point out that the "division" between emotion and
logic is, IMHO, illusory. My text sought to show that we evaluate
emotions, at least their appropriateness to a circumstance, logically. We
can also be horrified or happy about a logically-derived conclusion. So
why divide them? Instead, why not *unify* them?
