Conférence sur l'Expression générale et particulière des passions (given in 1668 – published in 1698) [1] is a text by Charles Le Brun.

The text is also known as Méthode pour apprendre à dessiner les passions. The theory in his lecture builds on Descartes's work Passions of the Soul which described man as 'machine' that transforms external stimuli to action.
