Catharsis

I’ve found out about an emotional process known as catharsis; it originates in Aristotle. It involves an emotional process whereby one emendates their character, it is an intense emotional experience whereby one becomes overall less emotional; insofar as it does, it has a constructive benefit to the person; while accepting Platonist fears, and also committed to the emendation of human life.

Perhaps my fears of sentimentality can be met with Aristotle. I sincerely hope so.
