Emotions lec 10 -JAMES : emotion have bodily feedback come from the face and gut, and feedback goes into feedback loop -bodily reaction sustains experience, relationship between organic and noetic -the world is out there happening the mind and body are happening and storm creates and affective portion that we call emotion -emotion doesn’t last forever but becomes a self sustaining system -body and mind working together to feed each other -psychodynamic: early on in our life we have certain istuations that become very powerful or us -early situations lay down foundation for emotional experience -later life experiences are echos of previous episodes -something early on remains a paradigm situation for the future -important thing: critical events happen early on and become paradigmatic, see events like that later powerful response to it, and these early events are unresolved usually that’s why they are so effective in the future -ziegarnik effect: talk about the need for completion-something is unresolved -reason people want to go in therapy, it can work out issues so its no longer carried around in your back pocket -rationalization: have tons of explanations for it -therapy change unresolved issues Existential phenomenology and emotion -difference between cognitive psych and psychodynamic cognitive problem presented in the moment and you need to answer, -need a comprehensive balance of the approaches -catharsis: release of emotions in unconscious Positivist outlook -comte: france dude talked about positivism; certain that it occurred -epistomology: knowledge -just because you can measure something does not mean its real we’re pretending its real -the meaning as whats taking as a measurement of real is ambiguous -just because u can measure does not mean its real, it may be real for you, but is not real in objectively -truth is relative to the knower but we take it for granted -knowledge as truth is taken for granted, it is positive knowledge because ppl in your group treat it as real and true -we never know from scratch: objective knowledge is situated in prior understanding Phenomenology -science of experience -if you want to understand a phenomenon (divorce, grief…) then the logical thing to do is to get a hold of people who lived in that reality and have them talk about their experiences - we need to understand situations and how universal they are -have a phenomena and you interpose your lenes of theory and method to make it closer -you want to be clear about your phenomenon -fear, add knowledge of situation with other compoenents Overlooking of experiential ontology -have an intention relation to our environment, we give meaning to our world
