Language and emotion from the Perspective of the Computational Belief-Desire Theory of Emotion
In Emiliano Lorini & Andreas Herzig (eds.), Dynamicity in Emotion Concepts. Springer Verlag (2012)
The relationship between language and emotion is discussed from the perspective of CBDTE, a computational (C) explication of the belief-desire theory of emotion (BDTE). Three claims are defended: First, natural language, humans’ main medium of communication, plays a highly important role in the process of emotion generation; second, natural language is of central importance for the communication of emotions and emotion-related information; third, a language of thought (a language-like mental representation system) is required to explain human emotions.
