Example text

Lyons, 1980: 7) Descartes does attempt to discuss the relationship between the passions and behaviour. He argues that passions cause the soul to will behaviour but that the actual behaviour is caused by the movements of the bodily spirits without any help from the soul. In other words the passions cause the soul to will behaviour which is already happening. The second problem for Descartes is that there is no basis on which to argue that emotions are appropriate or inappropriate. As Bedford (1964) argues, “[I]f someone were to say ‘I felt this pang this afternoon’ it would be meaningless to ask whether it was a reasonable or unreasonable pang” (p.

On the one hand we have an event in the world – one of rivalry – whereas on the other we have a mental representation or a belief – that there is impending danger. According to Aristotle, it is this belief about danger which is the stimulus to fear (and thus to the possibility of action), not the rivalry. It is quite possible that on another occasion exactly the same situation of rivalry would not be seen as dangerous and the person would not be afraid. It is equally possible that a situation which objectively does not seem dangerous, such as a trip to the supermarket, could be evaluated as highly threatening (as in the case of agoraphobia), thus leading to intense fear.

However, its form – by virtue of which it counts as a chair rather than some other thing – concerns its function as something that people sit on. Inevitably, this form constrains the simple geometric shape of chairs to some extent, but it is still true, as anyone who has recently visited a modern furniture store will testify, that chairs can come in all sorts of different shapes and be no less chairs as a consequence. There is one other distinction that it is important to grasp before we can apply these ideas to an understanding of emotions and that is the distinction between the capacity that a certain form has and the actual activity of that form.
