Passionate Engines

Craig Delancey

Oxford University Press

Cognitive theories of emotions are criticized. Cognitivism is shown to have two forms: reductive and doxastic. Each is found inconsistent with a range of important scientific findings about affects. The affect program theory is consistent with these findings, and is consistent with a weak form of cognitivism. The failure of cognitivism about emotions is also evidence for the hierarchical view of mind.

Keywords:   affect program theory, cognitivism, doxastic cognitivism, emotions, mind, reductive cognitivism, weak cognitivism
