Atlas of Emotions, a collaboration with the Dalai Lama

Posted to Infographics  |  Tags: , ,  |  Nathan Yau

Emotions are complex and only partially understood, yet such a force in how we live our lives. The Atlas of Emotions, produced by Stamen Design, shows what we know about these things, based on research and conversations between the Dalai Lama and psychologists Paul and Eve Ekman.

Using a geographic metaphor, the interactive starts with five universal emotions or “continents”: Anger, Fear, Sadness, Disgust, and Enjoyment. From there, you can see what states each puts you in and what actions come about.

But do I really have to say anything more than Dalai Lama? What.
