Emotion plays an undeniably important role in our lives. Yet, social theor=
y has tended to focus most often on the cognitive aspects of human social=
 living. In our attempts to understand human life as a social phenomenon=
 perhaps we have overlooked something just as important; something even f=
undamental. In this issue of disClosure, we seek to begin to redress thi=
s oversight =E2=80=93 we seek to think emotion from within the ambit of s=
ocial theory. =20
