Example text

Descartes also proposed a distinction between those emotions with immediate and exciting causes outside of the soul, as discussed above and exemplified by Susan’s fear of the bear, and those emotions “which are excited in the soul only by the soul itself” (Article 147). Kenny (1963) calls these latter experiences the “intellectual emotions”. To illustrate let us consider Susan’s flight from the bear. Although her immediate reaction is intense fear, it is possible (though admittedly unlikely in this case) that there is a secondary “intellectual” emotion of exhilaration or excitement which, Descartes would argue, is excited in the soul, by the soul.

33 COGNITION AND EMOTION One could be forgiven for believing, then, that form is just the shape of the matter in some simple geometric sense. However, Aristotle is making a more important point than this. For him, form is that which makes something count as what it is. So, if we take the example of a chair, its matter is what it is made of—wood, or steel, or whatever. However, its form—that by virtue of which it counts as a chair rather than some other thing—concerns its function as something that people sit on.

If we, once more, consider Susan’s lucky escape from the bear then, according to Skinner, Susan is defined as being afraid because she is running away and because the running away is an escape from the bear. However, it is difficult to see how we could be sure that Susan was not afraid if she stood and smiled at the bear (indeed, the US Park Service recommends standing still in such situations) or scratched her nose or performed any other behaviour. Skinner is forced to argue that Susan’s behaviour is only fear behaviour if it occurs in the presence of the correct (fearful) event; that is, in the presence of a bear.
