This chapter summarizes and draws together the main themes of the previous chapters, discussing the overarching developments of emotional concepts in encyclopedias and lexicons. It provides insights into connections between encyclopedic knowledge about emotions and the structures and processes of modern societies. The chapter reflects on some of the most pivotal changes in the perception of emotions in European societies over the past three centuries, including the complex relationship between passion and reason, the evolution of feelings in the midst of new social orders, and the changing role of emotions in the scientific realm.

Keywords:   key disciplines, mind/spirit, individualization, society, universality/universalization, gender, moralization, somatization
