Cognition and Emotion

Jake Young over at Pure Pedantry has an interesting article on cognition and emotion. He summarizes a review paper by Luiz Pessosa that argues that cognition and emotion are not separate. He goes through a number of different arguments in favor of such a thesis, which I will not list here, but needless to say, seem quite compelling. However, since Antonio Damasio’s work in the 90s, I don’t think this is a very radical hypothesis( Damasio published Descarte’s Error in 1994). Fascinating article nevertheless.
