Attitudes, Emotions, and Justification

To write a paper establishing (a) that questions of justification, whether of attitudes or emotions, arise only in contexts in which one has good reason to believe that what is to be justified may violate some accepted norm or rule; (b) that many emotions, e.g. hatred, anger, fear, normally do enter such contexts; (c) that many attitudes normally do not enter such contexts; and (d) that there is nothing unreasonable or logically untoward about adopting or maintaining such attitudes even though one is unable to "justify" them.
