Emotional Gestalts: Appraisal, Change, and the Dynamics of Affect

Paul Thagard, Josef Nerb
2002 Personality and Social Psychology Review  
This research was supported by a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada grant to the first author, and a Humboldt Foundation fellowship to the second author.  ...  Affect is a natural subject for a dynamical theory that emphasizes the flow of thought and the complex interactions of emotion and cognition.  ...  The result is intended to be a model that captures much more of the dynamic activities of the brain than previous connectionist models of emotional cognition.  ...

Strategic thinking in turbulent times

Constantin Bratianu
2017 Proceedings of the International Conference on Business Excellence  
On the time dimension they are: inertial, dynamic and entropic thinking. On the complexity dimension they are: linear, nonlinear and systemic thinking.  ...  On each of these dimensions I shall analyze the known thinking models and their attributes with respect to request formulated in the research question.  ...  Knowledge creation and sharing, intellectual capital, emotions and emotional intelligence, values and spiritual intelligence are nonlinear phenomena and their understanding needs nonlinear thinking models  ...

Emotional inertia: A key to understanding psychotherapy process and outcome

Xavier Bornas, Miquel Noguera, David Pincus, Gualberto Buela-Casal
2014 International Journal of Clinical and Health Psychology  
Nonlinear dynamical systems theory (NDS) offers a transdisciplinary scientific approach to the study of these processes.  ...  A testable mathematical model of emotional inertia is presented that represents specific impacts of psychotherapeutic processes on emotional dynamics over time.  ...  Models and methods from NDS each have in common a set of basic assumptions. First, most natural phenomena involve nonlinear (disproportionate) causes.  ...
