Emotion theory is about more than affect and cognition: Taking triggers and actions into account

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (2):198-199 (2005)
Understanding how emotions emerge is difficult without determining what characteristic of the trigger actually triggers them. Knowing whether emotional experiences self-stabilize is difficult without remembering what other processes are set in play as the emotion emerges. It is not clear either that positive feedback is required for the emergence of emotion or that an attractor model captures well what is happening when an emotion arises.
