A Philosophical Investigation of the Relationship between Emotion and Mood (RGC-FDS 2014-15)

Dr. WONG Muk Yan

This project seeks to clarify and reformulate the conceptual relationship between emotions and moods in light of recent research in philosophy, cognitive psychology, and neuroscience. The argument is that the output of emotion, i.e. physiological and behavioral responses, can be monitored by a mood with respect to its influence on our bodily condition; and the output of moods, i.e. cognitive biases, can affect how emotions appraise the environment. The resultant mood-emotion loop explains how emotion and mood interact.
