KRUGER, Paul A.. Emotions in the Hebrew Bible: A few observations on prospects and challenges. Old testam. essays [online]. 2015, vol.28, n.2, pp.395-420. ISSN 2312-3621.

Although there has been significant progress in the study of emo-tions in the HB in recent years, a variety of matters still need atten-tion or serious reflection. Tins article addresses some of these. Aspects that are focused on include: (1) the designation "emotion " and what it entails in a HB context; (2) the limitations of the original psychophysical approach; (3) the cognitive approach and the ques-tion of a dominant conceptual metaphor; (4) the social-construc-tionist view of emotions and the problems of translating emotional communication; and (5) some issues related to gender and emotion.

Palavras-chave : psychophysical approach; cognitive approach; dominant conceptual metaphor; social-constructionist view; gender and emotions.
