The intelligence of emotions

a path to discover

Gilberto A. Gamboa-Bernal

pp. 311-320

Much of the boom that the emotions have experienced at the end of the twentieth and beginning of the twenty-first centuries may be due to the informative literature from the 1990s that proclaimed the concept of "emotional intelligence." New developments in this field cannot ignore this fact, but it is necessary to specify that the terms emotional intelligence and intelligence of emotions are not synonymous.The development of psychology has departed to some extent from the beneficial influence that philosophy brought to it at its birth and during its first steps. Over the years, however, psychology has taken other paths related to emotions, and it is important to outline the "psychological perspective" that has matured in the clinical setting.Advances in neurobiology, computer science, and imaging have contributed to the study and greater knowledge of human emotional experience, in the same manner in which neurological imaging has allowed the exploration of such phenomena and has been able to document the neural areas involved in them.These advances applied to biology and health sciences have allowed an increased knowledge of brain and neurological functioning, although it is also true that in this field, there is still much to be learned.
