The Emotions

Peter Goldie (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Emotions and emotional episodes are distinguished. Emotions are intentional, but this intentionality cannot be fully captured in terms of feelingless beliefs and desires. The idea of feeling towards the object of the emotion is introduced as an antidote to this over‐intellectualization: emotions are intentional, but also essentially involve feelings. Emotions can be educated. They involve a conceptual tie between recognition and response: the recognition‐response tie. Commonsense psychological explanation of emotion and of action out of emotion are discussed.

Keywords:   action out of emotion, belief, commonsense psychology, desire, emotion, feeling, intentionality
