(1890, p. 749) In this analysis, panic attacks are the feelings of bodily changes that occur spontaneously for no apparent reason. , Dalgleish, 2004a) of feelings of fear and dread seemingly coming “out of the blue”. However, the fact that an individual is unaware of any cause of his or her emotions, whether it be cognitive or external, does not mean that such a cause does not exist.

However, it is also true that the term cognitive has a number of distinct and different uses. In this chapter we endeavour to outline what we consider to be the philosophical definition of cognitive. In Chapter 3 we go on to consider a number of other uses of the word that have emerged in the psychology literature. What is the philosophical sense of the word cognitive?

Here, Descartes must argue that the different types of spirit movements are associated with different exciting causes (events) and once again this leads to the event problem discussed above.
