Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(7), 603. Vladimir J. Konecni replies to Carroll E. Izard's response (see record 2006-06572-063) to Konecni's review (see record 2006-06402-005) of Izard's book, Human Emotions (1977). Konecni maintains that his review was not unfavorable. Izard's comments are politely stated; some points of contention are important, but subtle; others are relatively unimportant. To document his original criticisms, challenge Izard's defense and countercriticisms, and describe thoroughly all the features of the book (including contradictions) that led to the conclusions he reached in the review would require a lot of effort, patience, and space. He finds himself insufficiently motivated to write a detailed response and chooses to leave it to the proverbial “conscientious reader” to arbitrate the matter.
