The Author introduces the theme of the forum stressing the complex relations between emotions and language. He underlines two directions of this relationship: the first that springs from emotions and is expressed in language and the second that comes from language and influences emotional life. In this context he examines the concepts of narrative, memory and relation that are considered as key notions to investigate the bidirectional relationships between emotions and language. Finally he anticipates the topics treated by the four different contributions that constitute the present forum.

Keywords: Emotions, language, social relations, narrative, memory.
