I believe that you are sincere in what you write.Troll wrote: ↑Tue Mar 06, 2018 2:11 amI mean all the answers here, and in the recent post on emotion. Also, in daily life. The general notion that the scientific research program, currently in power, is the place to seek the answer to this question, What is emotion?, is very powerful.""What emotion means----" : meaning pertains to persons. You are a person at a philosophy forum so it's your job to be explicit as to what you mean.
"There is a buried presupposition-----". Who is doing the presupposing? No presupposition exists without presupposers. Please stop this evasive passive voice.
"One treats---" . Who treats? Again , please stop this evasive passive voice. State your position as explicit Troll. Please edit out all usage ; one says this and one says that."
So, it appears to me, one is not philosophic, but, rather, one assumes whichever scientific research program is currently in power is the place to seek the answer. This is what "one" thinks. And yet, on this website I find it especially rife, even by the standard of the estate of human beings.
The evasion which I complained about is not about your avoiding facts and ideas. The evasion about which I complained to you is about your lack of explicit language. You write "one is not philosophic, but,rather, one assumes----". you should have written not 'one' but you should instead have explained exactly who is not philosophic .
Is English not your native language?
I am not an authority on any science however I know enough of physiology at undergraduate level to assure you that the physiological model of emotion is effective for healing therapies and educational aims. According to the physiological model emotions are physiological responses to stimuli, responses which can be monitored by physical means such as haematology.
The word you want is not emotion but feeling, subjective feeling. Feelings are affected by physiological emotions and also by learning and memories.
It's helpful for people suffering from unpleasant feelings to know that the emotional component of those feelings is physiological , as this insight helps the sufferer to adjust false beliefs and aids self discipline. For instance an aftermath of a viral infection is depressed spirits; it's helpful to know that gloomy thoughts and feelings are caused largely by disruption of physiological emotional function due to the virus.
