Expectancy and emotion

Maria Miceli and Cristiano Castelfranchi

Series in Affective Science

  • Provides an analytical treatment of emotions in terms of their cognitive-motivational constituents helping to account for the richness and complexity of human emotional experiences
  • The first book that specifically focuses on the relationship between anticipation and emotion, and analyzes the whole spectrum of anticipation-based emotions
  • Emphasizes the relation and interaction between epistemic and motivational mechanisms and proceses, building an integrated model of cognitive, motivational, and emotional constructs
  • The focus on families of related emotions helps identify distinctive features of emotions belonging to the same family so as to explain and predict the specific motivational and behavioural consequences of each emotion. It also helps to account for possible transformations from one emotion to another
