    Appraisal Theory: Old and New Questions.Phoebe C. Ellsworth - 2013 - Emotion Review 5 (2):125-131.
    I describe my current thinking on two old questions—the causal role of appraisals and the relationship of appraisal theories to basic emotions theories and constructivist theories, and three (sort of) new questions—the completeness of appraisals, the role of language, and the development of automaticity in emotional responses.

    Appraisals and Reappraisals in the Courtroom.Phoebe C. Ellsworth & Adrienne Dougherty - 2016 - Emotion Review 8 (1):20-25.
    This article provides a brief introduction to psychological emotion theories, particularly appraisal theory. According to appraisal theory emotions are combinations of a person’s appraisal of the novelty, valence, certainty, goal conduciveness, causal agency, controllability, and morality of a situation. These dimensions correspond to elements of the stories attorneys attempt to create in arguing a case. Appraisal theory puts specific content into the vague concept of reappraisal, accounting for emotional changes that go beyond the changes in valence and intensity generally studied (...)

    Basic Emotions and the Rocks of New Hampshire.Phoebe C. Ellsworth - 2014 - Emotion Review 6 (1):21-26.
    This article describes James’s distaste for taxonomic classification of emotion and argues that he would not have been pleased by current scholarship which still focuses on the definition and classification of discrete emotions, distracting scholars from more fundamental underlying processes. I argue that as in James’s time, current taxonomies are still arbitrary and still constrain the kinds of questions psychologists ask.

    Author Reply: What is a Basic Emotion Theorist?Phoebe C. Ellsworth - 2014 - Emotion Review 6 (1):49-51.
    William James was not a basic emotion theorist in that he did not propose a list of basic emotions or concern himself with the question of which emotions were really basic. He may have believed that some emotions evolved earlier and spread more widely than others; whether this makes him a basic emotion theorist is a matter of taste.

    Author Reply: The Unbearable Heaviness of Feeling.Klaus R. Scherer & Phoebe C. Ellsworth - 2013 - Emotion Review 5 (2):189-191.
    The comments by Brosch and Sander, de Sousa, Frijda, Kuppens, and Parkinson admirably complement the four main articles, adding layers of complexity, but perhaps at the expense of theoretical parsimony and stringency. Their suggestions are inspiring and heuristic, but we must not forget that science is about testing concrete predictions.

    Who Cares About Marrying a Rich Man? Intelligence and Variation in Women’s Mate Preferences.Christine E. Stanik & Phoebe C. Ellsworth - 2010 - Human Nature 21 (2):203-217.
    Although robust sex differences are abundant in men and women’s mating psychology, there is a considerable degree of overlap between the two as well. In an effort to understand where and when this overlap exists, the current study provides an exploration of within-sex variation in women’s mate preferences. We hypothesized that women’s intelligence, given an environment where women can use that intelligence to attain educational and career opportunities, would be: (1) positively related to their willingness to engage in short-term sexual (...)
