[Introduction:] " Michael Brady's Emotional Insight takes off from the commonsensical thought that emotions often help us to learn about value. The aim is to explain what exactly the epistemic contributions of emotions are and how they're able to make them. Many philosophers argue emotions are similar to ordinary perceptions: emotions justify evaluative beliefs in the way perceptual experiences justify empirical beliefs (perceptualism, I'll call it). While Brady takes perceptualism seriously, he argues that it ultimately cannot explain the epistemic value of emotion. His positive view emerges from the critique."
