Flashcard Content Overview

Why do we blush? Why does our heart race when we are in a particular situation? Do we feel emotions first before we express them physically? Or, do we feel and express our emotions simultaneously? These are important questions to ask ourselves as we work toward understanding emotions. With the understanding of emotions, we can discern why emotions occur and learn how to control our emotions. Knowledge of emotions enables us to work toward better health physically, emotionally, and socially.

These questions and others have been asked and studied by psychologists since the 19th century. With this set of flashcards, you will study eight psychologists: William James, Carl Lange, Walter Cannon, Philip Bard, Stanley Schachter, Jerome Singer, Richard Lazarus, and Charles Darwin, along with their theories of emotion. In addition to theories of emotion, you will look at one hypothesis related to emotions.
