I find the title interesting- it seems almost obvious that emotions can't be logical. People you the word logical to refer to reductionist and fair thoughts. Emotions tend to be more dramatic, not reductionist at all (love) and more bias. I suppose emotions can be logical in a different way; sometimes our emotions can tell us the real situation. For example you could suddenly realise 'he doesn't love me'- this is logical (if with good reason!) and at the same time emotional. They are however seperate things caused by the same event/ action.

Emotions are the foundation of logic. How and why else laws are created?

Come on, man. It's my day to be lazy! OK, I'll rephrase it somewhat.

Human thoughts are the foundation of logic and emotions are the foundation of human thoughts, so in a long way round, emotions are the foundation of logic. It's all relative.

emotions are the only things that are actually true in your whole facade of lies... no matter how twisted or one sided... it's still true.

that's the first time I ever heard such an argument. Human thoughts can be relatively reasonable or relatively emotional, so you cannot just say since human thoughts are the foundation of logic (which I don't believe at all) it follows that emotions are also the foundation of logic because you assume emotions are the "foundation" of human thought. I can have plenty of thoughts without any emotions involved. =P

and tracy that's just BS not all emotions are true.

Acting based on emotions is being illogical. Doesn't mean it's a bad thing ...

Basically what I go by: emotion should be experienced and expressed, but they must be regulated by the application of reason.

I agree, more or less. What are the limits of emotion and reason though?
