The Structure of Emotions: Investigations in Cognitive Philosophy (Cambridge Studies in Philosophy) by Robert M. Gordon



The Structure of Emotions : Investigations in Cognitive Philosophy. The Structure of Emotions argues that emotion concepts should have a much more important role in the social and behavioural sciences than they now enjoy, and shows that certain influential psychological theories of emotions overlook the explanatory power of our emotion concepts.

In this book, Mark Rowlands challenges the Cartesian view of the mind as a self-contained monadic entity, and offers in its place a radical externalist or environmentalist model of cognitive processes. This innovative book provides a foundation for an unorthodox but increasingly popular view of the nature of cognition.

This is precisely what concerns Robert Gordon in The Srrucrure of Emotions. He is a professor of philosophy; the subtitle of the book is Investigations in Cognitive Philosophy. It is in the propositional tradition, extended to propositional attitudes, that is, those statements which are of the type: I believe that p or I wish that p. His aim is to find a systematic relationship between emotions, propositional attitudes of beliefs, wishes and desires, and knowledge of and action in the world. Factive emotions are exemplified in the following way: if a person is glad or unhappy that p, then he knows that p. Other emotions-the systemic emotions-are such that the individual hopes or fears p only if he does not know that p. Hence all emotions on our ordinary understanding of the term either require knowledge that p or are incompatible with.

The Structure of Emotions argues that emotion concepts should have a much more important role in the social and behavioural sciences than they now enjoy, and shows that certain influential psychological theories of emotions overlook the explanatory power of our emotion concepts. Professor Gordon also outlines a new account of the nature of commonsense (or 'folk') psychology in general.
