The fact that emotions play and has played an important role in psychology is indisputable. But even though there is a broad agreement about the kind of roles that emotions play, there is still very little consensus on what emotions are. This project is a survey of the essence of emotions, and seeks to participate in the discussion between some of the diametrically opposed theories. Emotions as a scientific topic has been neglected in the transformation of the science of the mind to the science of behavior. With the work of Antonio Damaiso, especially Descartes´ error scientific discourse on this topic has reemerged. This project is based on some of the influential theories in the field, and wishes to shed light on a more contemporary neuropsychological approach.
