1. Does anybody know any literature on the history of scientific ideas about love (or more generally emotions) in contemporary psychology?
2. About a different topic. Where Pintner and Paterson did publish there test of intelligence? Is there any published historical approach to their test?

On the question of "love" you should see Harlow, Harry F. (1958). The nature of love. American Psychologist, 13, 573-685 [Harlow's APA Presidential Address about his research on the the importance of contact comfort in monkey infants], which is available on-line at http://psychclassics.yorku.ca/Harlow/love.htm
There is a large literature on the psychology of emotion. Some of the "leaders" in the field include Plutchik, Zajonc, and Magda Arnold.
I do not know much about the Pinter-Patterson test, though there is a brief description of its intent and origin at http://www.todayinsci.com/cgi-bin/indexpage.pl?http://www.todayinsci.com/11/11_16.htm
