My dad was having an active discussion with me the other day about emotion and logic, seeing as he’d been listening to a lecture on the subject. What he said to me (and this is all paraphrasing on my part) was that logic doesn’t really exist. Even when we think we’re being rational, we’re acting on emotion. There were case studies, he told me, where people who couldn’t feel emotions anymore were asked to make decisions. And they couldn’t. Because emotion is the basis for everything in our lives.
This then led into his point about how obviously all politicians are scamming us because politics are based on subjects that trigger our emotions. But. It’s an interesting line of thought.
