Summary or Abstract : This dissertation endeavours to understand what emotion is, and the fundamental role that it plays in our lives. It proposes to do this from a phenomenological perspective, informed especially by Maurice Merleau-Ponty's notions of embodiment, habit, intercorporeality, and creative expression. It proceeds by attending to the dynamics of our emotional lives with others, and through a critical consideration of alternative accounts offered by contemporary philosophy of emotion, developmental psychology, and psychoanalysis.I argue that emotion is a form of unreflective, perceptual, and embodied experience that challenges notions of the human subject as discrete and wholly active. Emotion, rather, calls on us to conceive ourselves as inherently expressive beings, who are bodily moved to expression by a perceived world that is always informed by personal habits, history, and social gestures and practices. Indeed, our very existence as creative and rational beings is, I argue, fundamentally conditioned by our affective and bodily implication in others --by our intercorporeality.It is through our affective, bodily implication in others, I argue, that our habitual perceptions can be called into question, and that we can be propelled towards new ways of perceiving and being. On the one hand, our implication in others' ways of expressively configuring the world can give rise to lived, emotional conflicts within our experience, which call for transformation or personal becoming. On the other hand, it is through our inhabitation of others' ways of being in the world that we are provided with resources for a creative transformation of our habitual modes of assuming ourselves, others and the world. On the basis of this account of personal becoming and education, I argue that we must rethink the relation of reason and emotion: reason must ultimately be understood as an affective orientation that has assumed both the intercorporeal conditions of its own becoming, and the inherent finitude of being human. As a result, it is a way of being in the world that is open to learning and becoming, and committed to supporting and inspiring such creative becoming in others. I also explore the ethical implications of this understanding of emotion and human existence..
