English
This essay applies the methods of philosophical psychology to develop a perspective for the investigation of »religious emotions« within the field of religious studies. The principal idea underlying the sketched perspective is that emotions can be viewed as actions, or as ways of seeing the world. Emotions are not reactions but judgements and positions, projections and interpretations. This conception of emotions is introduced in terms of Ludwig Wittgenstein’s remarks on philosophical psychology, Jean-Paul Sartre’s theory of the emotions and Robert C. Solomon’s cognitive theory, which maintains that emotions are our own judgements, »with which we ‘constitute’ not only our world but ourselves«. These theories are subsequently considered in relation to the concept of religious emotions by means of a discussion of Richard Steele’s succinct formulation of the connection between language, narratives and emotions: »Human emotions are shaped by the communities to which we belong and by the authoritative narratives and distinctive practices of those communities«. The implications of the sketched perspective are finally summed up in six theses on religious emotions.
