The article brought up many interesting point about emotions that I have not learned about. I found the conflicting arguments about emotion and reason most interesting. Today most people tend to believe that emotion is almost opposite to reason but in fact at one point they were argued to go together. I understand that there is a tendency to view emotion as a reaction versus a thought out process but the arguments of monism stating that mind and body (emotion and reason) are the same is an interesting way to approach emotion. Ultimately, I agree with emotion being a reaction, especially with the speed at which synapsis are stimulated in the brain, but still an interesting way to approach emotion and the medieval studies.
