Abstract

The UK’s decision to leave the European Union has generated an intense political reaction, but arguably just as important is the emotional reaction from supporters on both sides of the debate. Sonja Avlijaš discusses the role that anger has played in the EU referendum and other political issues across the world, such as the presidential campaign of Donald Trump in the United States. Drawing on the work of the philosopher Martha Nussbaum, she reasons that rather than ignoring anger and protests, we should instead seek to transform anger into generosity and concern for the welfare of all of us.
