Affective Societies: Key Concepts (Cover)

Affective Societies: Key Concepts (Cover)

Scheve, Christian von; Slaby, Jan – 2019

This chapter outlines a concept of emotion according to which emotions are object- or situation-directed affective comportments, sorted into culturally established and linguistically labeled categories, such as fear, anger, or happiness. Emotion categories mirror specific kinds of evaluative world-relations, such as fear in response to imminent danger or indignation to an offense. In line with concepts of emotion in a range of academic disciplines, the proposed concept conceives of emotions as cognitive and affective processes characterized by specific configurations of phenomenal experiences, bodily changes, expressive behaviors, and action tendencies.
