The Atlas of Emotions is a fantastic new interactive online resource for understanding the human inner emotional landscape. The Dalai Lama reached out to Paul Ekman and other affective researchers to create a user-friendly, visual map of the knowledge psychology and neuroscience have accrued over decades of research about emotional states and their behavioral manifestations.
