(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? As we have seen, Aristotle draws an important distinction between what he calls the object of an emotion and the stimulus. So, if someone is a rival for an advantage that only one of us can enjoy, then this situation (object) only arouses fear if I evaluate it as being one of impending danger.

The next question then is how did the fear set of spirit movements start instead of, say, the anger set? 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. However, Descartes goes further: Moreover, I note that objects which move the senses do not excite different passions in us in proportion to all of their diversities, but only in proportion to the different ways they can harm or profit us.
