  1. Sensory Versus Core Affect.Murat Aydede - manuscript
    This is the text of an invited talk exploring the connections between two apparently distinct notions of affect, sensory versus core affect. It is basically a progress report. It is exploratory and tentative. It starts from a mild puzzle about the apparent mismatch between the notion of affect that affective neuroscientists generally deploy and the notion of affect that emotion psychologists deploy. The notion favored by psychologists is the notion of core affect. The phenomenon studied by affective neuroscientists is usually (...)

  2. The Irreducibility of Emotional Phenomenology.Jonathan Mitchell - 2018 - Erkenntnis 1:1-28.
    Emotion theory includes attempts to reduce or assimilate emotions to states such as bodily feelings, beliefs-desire combinations, and evaluative judgements. Resistance to such approaches is motivated by the claim that emotions possess a sui generis phenomenology. Uriah Kriegel defends a new form of emotion reductivism which avoids positing irreducible emotional phenomenology by specifying emotions’ phenomenal character in terms of a combination of other phenomenologies. This article argues Kriegel’s approach, and similar proposals, are unsuccessful, since typical emotional experiences are constituted by (...)

  3. Is Love and Emotion?Arina Pismenny & Jesse Prinz - 2017 - In Christopher Grau & Aaron Smuts (eds.), Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Love. New York, NY, USA:
    What kind of mental phenomenon is romantic love? Many philosophers, psychologists, and ordinary folk treat it as an emotion. This chapter argues the category of emotion is inadequate to account for romantic love. It examines major emotion theories in philosophy and psychology and shows that they fail to illustrate that romantic love is an emotion. It considers the categories of basic emotions and emotion complexes, and demonstrates they too come short in accounting for romantic love. It assesses the roles of (...)

The first chapter demonstrates a specific method of understanding emotions. The second chapter examines the concept of emotions as a source of the specific modes of “internal” rationality of an agent. The third chapter isdevoted to a comparison between various emotions and the two basic intentional states - (...)

    How should we understand the emotional rationality? This first part will explore two models of cognition and analogy strategies, test their intuition about the emotional desire. I distinguish between subjective and objective desire, then presents with a feeling from the "paradigm of drama" export semantics, here our emotional repertoire is acquired all the learned, and our emotions in the form of an object is fixed. It is pretty well in line with the general principles of rationality, especially the lowest reasonable (...)

    I argue that emotions are not only rational in-themselves, strictly speaking, but they are also instrumentally rational, epistemically rational, and evaluatively rational. I begin with a discussion of what it means for emotions to be rational or irrational in-themselves, which includes the derivation of a criterion for the ontological rationality of emotions (CORe): For emotion or an emotion there exists some normative standard that is given by what emotion or an emotion is against which our emotional responses can be judged (...)

    In this paper a connection between intentionality, intensionality, language and emotion will be drawn up through a demonstration of an intimate relationship between the intentionality of emotion and intensionality in language. What will be shown is that the intentionality of emotion can ultimately be traced to the intensionality of emotional contexts. For this purpose, emotive predicates will be categorized in terms of their intensional behavior and regularities. They will then be brought forward for an explication of why and how far (...)

    Do our emotions stop us being rational? For thousands of years, emotions have been thought of as obstacles to intelligent thought. This view has been challenged in recent years by both philosophers and scientists. In this groundbreaking book, the first of its kind, leading thinkers from philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience challenge this commonly held view of emotion in a series of fascinating and challenging essays.

Dr Wilson sets his enquiry against a broad historical background on what distinguishes man from inanimate objects by describing both Cartesian view of man is matter plus mind and the neo-Wittgensteinian view that there is a dynamic behavioural (...)

    In this thesis I consider a key problem in the theory of rationality, namely that as limited knowers we must set limits on the scope of our considerations. In Chapter I, I outline the problem: the need to draw certain kinds of cognitive limits in order to be rational and the special role that emotions play in that process. In Chapter II, I outline a theory of rationality. I do this by considering a number of views on rationality and epistemology (...)

  20. Emotions and Reasons.Robert Pinto - unknown
    This paper pictures emotions as able to provide reasons for action in so far as the beliefs and desires which make up reasons for action are constitutive elements of emotions themselves. It claims that the states of the world which prompt emotional attitudes “justify” them in so far as they render the beliefs constitutive of those attitudes true. Finally, it addresses the question what can make the desires or valuings ingredient to emotions appropriate to their objects.

    This dissertation explores the practices of emotion work in the financial services industry as they are constructed in interviews with people employed in different financial organizations. The issues of emotion work in organizations are generally investigated in terms of emotion management, impression formation and negotiation or accomplishment. The previous research has also uncovered that emotions and market moods influence how people make financial decisions under conditions of fundamental uncertainty. In this study, I adopt a critical-interpretive approach and seek to develop (...)

    In this thesis I argue that emotion can not be adequately defined in terms of sensation, normative belief , nor a combination of the two. Emotion does entail "feeling" however, and explaining the sense of feeling which is relevant to defining emotion is the central aim of this thesis. In brief, I will show that the "emotionally relevant" sense of feeling is intentional in itself--but it is not to be identified with bodily sensation as feelings "traditionally" have been treated, nor (...)

    The subject of this thesis is the emotion-object relationship and the problem of the justification of emotions as it bears on the emotion-object relationship. We will consider three possible constituents of the concept of emotion: feelings, behavior, and belief. ;Feeling cannot be the only constituent of emotion because there are not enough distinct feelings to account for the number of emotions we seem to have. However, the Schachter-Singer study indicates that, though feelings are not the means by which we identify (...)

    We present an anaphoric conception of the content of emotions as the key for a proper understanding of their normativity. Assuming an adaptive theory of emotions, they are characterized as a kind of differential responsive disposition involving an evaluative perceptual dimension and an expressive action-oriented dimension. Normativity of emotions mean they are subjected to correction criteria, which are satisfied if and only if the emotional valence assigned to the perceived situation is preserved throughout the expressive process. The preserved valence may (...)

    A theory of emotion which stresses the use of emotion concepts to explain actions is developed. An account of action explanation which depends upon Brentano's thesis of the autonomy of the mental realm is given and shown to be consistent with both determinism and physicalism. A proof of the possibility of an autonomous science of the intentional is offered as an answer to Davidson's challenging position of anomalous monism. The use of intentional concepts in explantions of actions framed by a (...)

  39. Belief and Justification in Emotion.Peter L. Caverzasi - 1985 - Dissertation, New York University
    This thesis begins with the observation that people often criticize other's emotion and explains how such criticism is possible. I argue that emotion is mainly criticized for an unjustifiable belief specific to and logically presupposed by the emotional state. I also claim that the specific belief may be valuative or factual, depending upon the emotion considered. By supporting the belief specific to the emotion, a person can defend his emotion as justifiable. ;However, a full account of emotion criticism requires supplementation. (...)

    A conceptual framework is proposed for emotion and emotion's object directedness. It is argued that philosophical theories of both these phenomena are in need of revision at the level of their most basic assumptions. The new conceptions are drawn from a common sense view of the world and are reflected in ordinary discourse on emotion. These conceptions are shown to avoid some of the pitfalls of traditionally held views. ;The notion of object directedness, as it stands in the philosophical literature, (...)

Emotion and ethics, like emotion and reason, have been separated by a false dichotomy between absence of control in the former and presence of control in the latter. ;Emotions constitute our lives, and specifically our values. I explain emotion in terms of cognition, affect, ordered hierarchy, intentional objects, valued transformation, material substrate and interpretation. I reject as incomplete theories of emotion which classify emotions (...)

    Recent years have seen an explosion of interest in the study of emotion and cognition, and an increasing rejection of the traditional philosophical prejudice against emotions as irrational or disruptive. The essays in this collection explore various facets of the relationships among emotion, action, rationality, and self-knowledge, with particular attention to three main sets of issues: the relationships between emotions and action, the roles emotion and action play in the development of self-awareness, and the rationality of emotions and emotional action.

    Weakness of will violates practical rationality; but may also be viewed as an epistemic failing. Conflicts between strategic and epistemic rationality suggest that we need a superordinate standard to arbitrate between them. Contends that such a standard is to be found at the axiological level, apprehended by emotions. Axiological rationality is sui generis, reducible to neither the strategic nor the epistemic. But, emotions are themselves capable of raising paradoxes and antinomies, particularly when the principles they embody involve temporality. They constitute (...)
