Autonomic Arousal and Emotional Feeling
This chapter considers the role of arousal in emotional experience. It argues that arousal serves as one of a number of cue sources that generate some emotional experiences. Arousal is sufficient to increase anger, fear, passionate love, and their close relations. Arousal is also necessary in the somewhat weak sense that some cue sources are required. An absence of arousal will reduce the intensity of those same emotional experiences.
