Recent work in the sociology of emotions is reviewed. The physiological bias in that work is noted, as is the emphasis on the study of emotion as either the cause or the consequence of factors external to emotional consciousness and interaction. Emotions are reconceptualized as self-feelings. Their study from a symbolic interactionist point of view is suggested.
