Title

Emotions as Transformational Structures

Document Type

Article

Abstract

Emotions involve transformations of the relationships that exist in the "natural" world as well as in social worlds. Thus, the emotions that humans construct are based on affective processes that exist independently from human society and are not necessarily constituted by the interplay of culture and genetic or physiological processes. © 2012 The Author(s).
