GARCES GIRALDO, Luis Fernando  and  GIRALDO ZULUAGA, Conrado de Jesús. Emotions in aristotle: animic faculties in the formation of opinions and judgments. sophia [online]. 2018, vol.14, n.1, pp.75-86. ISSN 1794-8932.

Emotions for Aristotle are emotional faculties in human beings, which can generate susceptibility and cause at some point that judgments be changed and other types of impressions be generated; they are accompanied by pleasure and pain, depending on the moods (that are present) at the moment of feeling some emotion. In this article, in addition to developing a reflection on emotions from the Stagirita, there are described some of them and their opposites, which are the most common in all his writings, such as anger and calmness; love and hate; fear and trust; shame and shamelessness; compassion and indignation; and finally, envy and emulation.

Keywords : Pain; emotions; passions; pleasure; Aristotle.
