Catalina Cortés Severino and Laura Quintana Porras in conversation with Andrea Díaz Cardona

Correspondence on the emotions

Cartagena 2023, 

Two Colombian thinkers, Catalina Cortés Severino y Laura Quintana Porras, one an anthropologist, the other a philosopher, and both writers, reflect on the emotions in their recent and original book Esos afectos voraces: Una correspondencia, in which they use the epistolary form to exchange thoughts, drawing on the knowledge of their own disciplines in order to examine human experiences. A look at the emotions and how they structure and define experience (from the personal to the collective) and our own culture. In conversation with the BBC Mundo journalist, Andrea Díaz Cardona.
