Emozioak, baloreak eta legea = Emociones, valores y leyes = Emotions, Values, and Law

Garbiñe Biurrun & Daniel Vanello

What is the relationship between emotions and law-making? Your very personal emotions are connected to the social values of our culture. The law is a formalization of it all. In this talk, Philosopher Daniel Vanello will discuss how emotions are the fundamental underlying component for us to learn value, and how they lead to the formation of our sense of identity. According to Vanello, our sense of identity is inextricably connected to the cultivation of emotions during our upbringing. Judge Garbiñe Biurrun will relate emotions to law-making: How do social values become laws? How does a state prime or sanction some emotions through law-making? How do we decide who should feel guilty, proud, ashamed, fearful, etc? Can a judge decide a case without emotions?
