Le GRIN reçoit Raamy Majeed (University of Auckland), qui offrira une présentation intitulée « Do Recalcitrant Emotions Show that Emotions are Modular? »
The occurrence of recalcitrant emotions, i.e. emotional episodes that are in conflict with our considered judgements, are used as unproblematic means of motivating the view that emotions are modular: roughly, that they are cognitive capacities which are explained by mental components functionally dissociable from other parts of the mind. In this paper, I argue that recalcitrant emotions don’t, by themselves, show that emotions are modular in a non-trivial sense.
