I love Silver Sneakers. I often use different gyms in order to just break up my routines. I joined YouFit and Anytime Fitness. Why is YouFit allowed to charge me for full service over my SilverSneakers membership.
They are making me pay the balance for the full membership that allows me to bring a guest and use other YouFit clubs. Anytime Fitness does not allow a guest but does allow me to use all other of its clubs. Is this what is allowed under Silver Sneakers? Is there any coverage through BCN?
This mental state registers the bodily changes, but represents meaningful, albeit simple, information. In this example the mental state represents danger. Adapted from Prinz a, p. The advantage that Prinz's theory has over James' is that it incorporates a plausible account of the intentionality of emotions into a somatic feedback theory.
In Prinz's theory, the mental state the emotion is caused by bodily activity, but, rather than being about the bodily activity, the emotion is about something else, namely these simple pieces of information that the mental state represents.
The third theorist in this group, Antonio Damasio, is also able to account for the intentionality of the mental state that is caused by feedback from the body. Here, Damasio's account differs from Prinz's because Damasio takes it that the emotion process does include cognitive evaluations, at least for most emotions.
A word of clarification before proceeding: In Damasio's theory, a typical case begins with thoughts and evaluations about the stimulus, and this mental activity triggers a bodily response—this process Damasio calls "the emotion. This feeling occurs "in juxtaposition" to the thoughts and evaluations about the stimulus that triggered the bodily changes in the first place.
Damasio's somatic feedback theory. The part of this process that includes B and C is what Damsio calls the emotion. The mental representation of the activity in the body, D , Damasio calls the feeling. Since B and D co-occur, the feeling will be accompanied by the information that triggered the bodily response.
According to Damasio, these feelings are crucial in helping us make decisions and choose our actions see Damasio's somatic marker hypothesis , , As an illustration of this, let us say that Bill's brother-in-law has just offered to let him in on a risky, but possibly lucrative business venture.
Although Bill realizes that there are many aspects of the situation to consider, the thought of losing a lot of money causes a bodily response.
The feedback from Bill's body is then juxtaposed with the thought of being tangled up in a losing venture with his brother-in-law. It is this negative feeling that informs Bill's choice of behavior, and he declines the offer without ever pondering all of the costs and benefits. Bill could have considered the situation more thoroughly, but acting on this kind of feeling is, according to Damasio, often the way in which actions are chosen.
Another important feature of Damasio's account and one that Prinz has adopted is the idea that there is an as-if loop in the brain—as in 'as-if the body were active. The somatosensory cortices will respond as if the bodily activity was actually occurring. This will generate a feeling more quickly and efficiently, although it may not feel the same as a genuine bodily response , p. In any case, the consequence is that there can be a feeling even if the body is not involved.
The possibility that there is an as-if loop in the brain allows the somatic feedback theorists to explain how individuals who cannot receive the typical feedback from the body can still have feelings or in Prinz's language, emotions , for instance, those individuals who have suffered spinal cord injuries.
This article has outlined the basic approaches to explaining the emotions, it has reviewed a number of important theories, and it has discussed many of the features that emotions are believed to have.
One tentative conclusion that can now be drawn is that it is unlikely that any single theory will prevail anytime soon, especially since not all of these theories are in direct competition with each other. Some of them are compatible, for instance, an evolutionary theory and a theory that describes the emotion process can easily complement each other; Griffiths' theory of the affect program emotions demonstrates that these two perspectives can be employed in a single theory.
On the other hand, some of the theories are simply inconsistent, like the cognitive and non-cognitive theories, and so the natural expectation is that one of these positions will eventually be eliminated.
Many of the theories, however, fall somewhere in between, agreeing about some features of emotion, while disagreeing about others. The empirical evidence that exists and continues to be collected is one topic that has not been discussed in this article.
Being familiar with this research is central to analyzing and critiquing the theories. In the past forty years, a vast amount of data has been collected by cognitive and social psychologists, neuroscientists, anthropologists, and ethologists. This empirical research has made theorizing about the emotions an interesting challenge.
A problem that remains for the theorist of emotion is accounting for all of the available empirical evidence. Theories of Emotion There are different theories of emotion to explain what emotions are and how they operate. Plutchik Historical, but Not Adaptationist: Emotion Emotion is one type of affect, other types being mood, temperament and sensation for example, pain. Evolutionary Theories The evolutionary approach focuses on the historical setting in which emotions developed.
One example, noted by Darwin in The Origin of Species , is the skull sutures in newborns: Natural Selection in Early Hominids The theories in the first group claim that the emotions were selected for in early hominids. According to Cosmides and Tooby, the emotion of sexual jealousy, deals with these problems in the following ways: Adaptations Shared by All Animals: Plutchik In contrast to theories that claim that the emotions are the result of natural selection that occurred in early hominids, another position is that the selection occurred much earlier, and so the adaptations are shared by a wider collection of species today.
Historical, but Not Adaptationist: Griffiths Although the trend when explaining emotions from a historical point of view is to focus on adaptations, an alternative is simply to identify the traits that are present in a certain range of species because of their shared ancestry. Social and Cultural Theories The second main approach to explaining the emotions begins with the idea that emotions are social constructions. Motivations for the Social Approach This section will discuss some of the motivations for adopting this approach to explaining the emotions.
In brief, Parkinson describes emotion as: James Averill ; see also has identified the rules for anger, some of which are listed here: A person has the right duty to become angry at intentional wrongdoing or at unintentional misdeeds if those misdeeds are correctable for example, due to negligence, carelessness, or oversight. Anger should be directed only at persons and, by extension, other entities one's self, human institutions that can be held responsible for their actions.
Anger should not be displaced on an innocent third party, nor should it be directed at the target for reasons other than the instigation. The angry response should be proportional to the instigation; that is, it should not exceed what is necessary to correct the situation, restore equity, or prevent the instigation from happening again.
Anger should follow closely the provocation and not endure longer than is needed to correct the situation typically a few hours or days, at most pp. Emotions Are Transitory Social Roles: Averill Many theories have been developed from the social perspective, but one that has been particularly significant is James Averill's, which will be reviewed in this section , , Theories of the Emotion Process The third category of theories contains those that attempt to describe the emotion process itself.
Cognitive Theories The cognitive theories contend that the early part of the emotion process includes the manipulation of information and so should be understood as a cognitive process. Roseman and Smith provide an example using sadness and comment on the consequence of this example for a theory of emotion: Judgment Theories Judgment theories are the version of the cognitive position that have been developed by philosophers.
Nussbaum believes that this can be demonstrated by considering the consequences of having the requisite mental states while not having a bodily response: Thus, William Lyons describes his theory, the causal-evaluative theory, as follows: Cognitive Appraisal Theories Cognitive appraisal theories are the cognitive theories that have been developed by psychologists.
The five appraisal components are described as follows: The motivational state appraisal distinguishes between states that the individual views as desirable appetitive and states that are viewed as undesirable aversive.
This is not an evaluation of whether the event itself is positive or negative; rather it is an evaluation of whether the event includes some important aspect that is perceived as a goal or some aspect that is perceived as a punishment. A punishment or something perceived as a punishment that is avoided is a positive event, but still includes an evaluation of a punishment. For example, according to Roseman, although relief is a positive emotion, it includes an evaluation that some important aspect of the event is aversive.
Conversely, sorrow, a negative emotion, includes an evaluation that some important aspect of the event is appetitive. The situational state component determines whether the desirable or undesirable quality of the event is present or absent. The appraisal that something desirable is present and the appraisal that something undesirable is absent are both motive-consistent.
On the other hand, the appraisal that something desirable is absent or something undesirable is present is motive-inconsistent. So for instance, the situational state for both joy and relief is motive-consistent. But, joy includes the appraisals that there is a desirable state and it is present, and relief includes the appraisals that there is an undesirable state and it is absent.
The probability component evaluates whether an event is definite certain , only possible uncertain , or of an unknown probability.
For this component, an outcome of uncertainty contributes to hope instead of joy or relief, which both involve an appraisal that the event is certain that is, the outcome of the event has been determined.
The possibility that the event can be appraised as having an unknown probability was added by Roseman in order to account for surprise, which is often considered a basic emotion for example, Izard, ; Ekman, For this appraisal, unknown differs from uncertain in that unknown is the value that is assigned when the distinction between motive-consistent versus motive-inconsistent cannot be made. When the distinction can be made, the value is assigned certain or uncertain.
The evaluation of power is the individual's perception of his or her strength or weakness in a situation. These values distinguish, for example, shame weak and regret strong , as well as dislike weak and anger strong. Roseman suggests a situation that would be likely to cause an evaluation of weakness rather than strength.
He suggests that we "consider someone being robbed at gunpoint. Will this person, quite unjustly treated but quite weak, be feeling anger? I contend that he would not, though he would probably feel some negative emotion towards his assailant. Lastly, the agency component. An evaluation is made about whether the event was caused by the individual, caused by some other person, or is merely a result of the situation that is, the event is perceived as lacking an agent.
This appraisal usually determines to whom or towards what the emotion is directed. Making this evaluation sometimes requires a subtle understanding of what the emotion-causing stimulus is.
For instance, consider an individual who is presented with a gift by a friend. If the individual focuses on the gift and having just received it the general state of affairs , his emotion is joy. If the individual focuses on the friend who has just given the gift focuses on another person , the emotion is liking.
Non-Cognitive Theories Non-cognitive theories are those that defend the claim that judgments or appraisals are not part of the emotion process.
Some Emotions Are Non-Cognitive: Ekman and Griffiths Paul Ekman originally developed what is now the standard description of the non-cognitive process , and more recently Paul Griffiths has incorporated Ekman's account into his own theory of the emotions Describing the automatic appraisal mechanism, Ekman says: These are some of the examples that Ekman offers: All Emotions Are Non-Cognitive: Robinson An alternative view is that the emotion process is always a non-cognitive one.
Somatic Feedback Theories The theories discussed in this section have varied in the importance that they place on the bodily changes that typically during the emotion process. This is a point that James illustrates with the following thought experiment: Conclusion This article has outlined the basic approaches to explaining the emotions, it has reviewed a number of important theories, and it has discussed many of the features that emotions are believed to have.
