Susan James: Emotional Responses to Fiction: A Spinozist Approach
Some human passions are stronger and more intense than others. Rage, for example, is stronger than irritation, and hatred is stronger than dislike. Love can be stronger than fear, or the other way round. We habitually describe passions as strong or weak, and assess them in these terms. (Her rage was excessive, her love insufficient.) In doing so, we draw on an ancient metaphor that clearly makes some phenomenological sense. But what does the strength of a passion consist in?

Since the metaphor has been around for such a long time there will be more than one detailed answer to this question, but in this lecture I shall begin by sketching a relatively stable interpretation of passionate strength and its counterpart, passionate weakness. I shall go on to consider what this metaphor can explain about our passions, and what it conceals.
