On the cognitive nature of emotions and the emotional nature of cognitions

Chapter


Abstract


  • What is the relation between the quality of children's emotional attachments

    to their caregivers and their intellectual development? Is there a relation

    between the emotional valence or content of a text and its comprehension

    by a pupil? How are emotional disorders such as depression and anxiety

    related to memory and attention? These are the kinds of questions that both

    researchers and practitioners in psychological sciences might address when

    confronted with the issue of the relation between emotion and cognition.

    This issue provides a framework within which researchers and professionals

    in cognitive and affective sciences can meet, share and discuss their knowledge.

    In today's psychological literature, it is impossible to find a cohesive outline

    of the possible answers to the question of the relation between cognition

    and emotion. In this chapter we address the form that such an answer

    might plausibly take.
