ORTHOSTATIC HYPOTOMY, THE LOCK ON SYNDROME, AND THE PHYSIOLOGY OF CONSCIOUSNES
Languages of publication
This paper is an attempt to sketch out the idea how to conjoin the physiological perspective with the philosophical perspective in the full account of human emotions. It discusses cognitive and phenomenological aspects of emotions and deploys the James-Lange argument against the claim that mental states causally precede physiological occurrences in the body. Given the results of this discussion and taking into account two medical diseases known as orthostatic hypotomy and lock on syndrome, it is argued that the James-Lange conception of the causal direction of stimuli may provide a strong clue to the solution of the philosophical problem concerning the direction of causation between mind and body.
