From the dust jacket: "In this beautiful and effective translation, the author has omitted extraneous material. Since so few people in our modern society study Latin, Mrs. Dingus wished to provide young and old alike with an easy-to-read English version of the classical philosophy regarding Old Age. She presents, in the foreword, her own impressions and offers a modern interpretation of how to best go about finding, in an age of rapidly advancing technology, the consolation to which Cicero so ofter refers. The author believes that the later years of life should continue to be enjoyable and productiv for each person. In this volume, she shows one and all how to obey nature gracefully and admit that character, instead of age, accounts for our faults. This advice from the ancient philosophers, recorded freely and with compassion, is the legacy of our modern world from the past. For the truths of the precepts stand today, just as they have throughout the ages."

5 What Is Emotion? History, Measures, and Meanings Kagan, Jerome
New Haven, CT, USA Yale University Press 2007 0300124740 / 9780300124743 First Edition/First Printing Hard Copy New New 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
Yale University Press, New Haven, 2007. 1st edition/1st printing. Book is New: light bump on edge and corners of rear board; not a remainder. From the publisher: "In this sophisticated overview of human emotions, a widely respected psychologist and author addresses the ambiguities and embraces the controversies that surround this intriguing subject. An insightful and lucid thinker, Jerome Kagan examines what exactly we do know about emotions, which popular assumptions about emotions are incorrect, and how scientific study must proceed if we are to uncover the answers to persistent and evasive questions about emotions. Integrating the findings of anthropological, psychological, and biological studies in his wide-ranging discussion, Kagan explores the evidence for great variation in the frequency and intensity of emotion among different cultures. He also discusses variations among individuals within the same culture and the influences of gender, class, ethnicity, and temperament on a person’s emotional patina. In his closing chapter, the author proposes that three sources of evidence -- verbal descriptions of feelings, behaviors, and measures of brain states -- provide legitimate but different definitions of emotion. Translating data from one of these sources to another may not be possible, Kagan warns, and those who study emotions must accept -- at least for now -- that their understanding is limited to and by the domain of their information."
