This chapter emphasises the positive emotions of love, empathy and compassion but said nothing about justified anger. Ruitenberg observes that educating the political emotions requires the development of a sense of solidarity, and the ability to feel anger on behalf of injustices committed against those in less powerful social positions. The chapter discusses three different ways of cultivating political emotions. It distinguishes formal from informal approaches or pedagogies of compassion from pedagogies of contemplation. Narrative imagination and contemplative practices were discussed as means for cultivating a desire to act in just ways through the formal curriculum. Treating knowledge and emotions separately is somewhat artificial. The chapter focuses on the that has been shown to be relevant to political engagement, or the enactment of civic-mindedness.
