Overview

The relationship between thinking and feeling has puzzled philosophers for centuries, but more recently has become a dominant focus in psychology and in the brain sciences. This second edition of the highly praised Cognition and Emotion examines everything from past philosophical to current psychological perspectives in order to offer a novel understanding of both normal emotional experience and the emotional disorders.

The authors integrate work on normal emotions with work on the emotional disorders. Although there are many influential theories of normal emotions within the cognition and emotion literature, these theories rarely address the issue of disordered emotions. Similarly, there are numerous theories that seek to explain one or more emotional disorders (e.g., depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and phobias), but which rarely discuss normal emotions. The present book draws these separate strands together and introduces a theoretical framework that can be applied to both normal and disordered emotions. It also provides a core cognition and emotion textbook through the inclusion of a comprehensive review of the basic literature. The book includes chapters on the historical background and philosophy of emotion, reviews the main theories of normal emotions and of emotional disorders, and includes separate chapters organised around the five basic emotions of fear, sadness, anger, disgust, and happiness.

Cognition and Emotion: From Order to Disorder provides both an advanced textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in addition to a novel approach with a range of implications for clinical practice for work with the emotional disorders.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The conceptual angle of the book is compelling, and based on a measured, broad and informed view of the literature. The authors show a familiarity and knowledge of this wide domain of expertise which they convey with clarity and in an accessible style." - Warren Mansell, School of Psychological Sciences, University of Manchester

"This book is a unique contribution to modern emotion research. There is no other text that manages to weave strands of historical and contemporary approaches to emotion science from philosophical, psychological, and clinical perspectives into a rich tapestry as Power and Dalgleish achieve with the presentation of their SPAARS model. This is a field in motion and the authors capture a moment in time and foster further integrative research by jumping effortlessly across the boundaries of different disciplines." - Arvid Kappas, Professor of Psychology, Jacobs University Bremen

"Once again, with their unique style, Power and Dalgleish have produced a most readable, comprehensive, and scholarly book on Cognition and Emotion. The integration of theory and evidence is done extremely well, and enhanced with reference to the authors' own integrative model of emotion (SPAARS). The authors' refreshing approach to the understanding of emotions puts this book in the top league of current competitors." - Nazanin Derakhshan, School of Psychology, Birkbeck University of London

"[…] For any aspiring or even established researcher of emotion who wishes to maintain an open-minded view, what is presented here is an enjoyable, illuminating and persuasive read." – Frances A. Maratos, Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2009

"[...]The authors should be commended for undertaking this very important and ambitious endeavour. What sets this text apart from other books on cognition and emotion is its attempt to describe the philosophical and historical underpinnings of work on emotion." - Canadian Psychology/Psychologie Canadienne, Naomi Koerner
