Editorial Reviews

Review

'By emphasising the ineluctably causal nature of the emotions his analysis fits in well with contemporary work on the causal theory of action and thought. It also makes for a clear picture of how emotions influence, and on occasion explain, intentional action. An important thesis of Gordon's book is that most emotions have a propositional object, that is, are directed to actual or imagined states of affairs. This theme is convincingly developed, and leads to a number of instructive dictinctions. I heartily recommend this book.' Donald Davidson

Book Description

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.
