Moreover, the same authors found evidence for “a diminished connectivity within the DMN (default mode network) of alexithymic participants, in brain areas (such as the ACC) that may also be involved in emotional awareness and self-referential processing” (ibid.) (2010). doi: 10.1080/1047840x.2017.1255492. J. Strachey (London: Vintage). While the above account of the repression of the consciousness of emotion provides an outline of the form that such repression can take, we have yet to describe the process of repression itself. One, the lowest, corresponds to the experience of affect. The first category – which we will call “unconsciously generated emotion” – involves cases where emotional responses are themselves consciously experienced/recognized, but where those emotions are generated in response to unconscious processes … “Inhibitions, symptoms, and anxiety,” in The Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud, Vol. In order to understand this account, we need to understand what Roberts intends by “construal.” The concept was inspired by a passage from the Philosophical Investigations (Wittgenstein, 1953, pp. Yes, not only do unconscious emotions exist, all your emotions are unconscious, at least at first. First, it shows how a construal account captures the essential characteristics of emotion. Discover your Freudian personality type with our Fixation Test. 55, 594–611. But there is another possible interpretation – which even if not exegetically correct, may be more theoretically appropriate – in line with my account. Freud does indeed make numerous references to unconscious emotion throughout his work (e.g., Freud, 1900/1957, p. 560, 1905/1957, pp. These alternative explanations may include a symptom “belief”16 (which can arise due to numerous factors, such as recent experiences with illness, cultural or other illness-related beliefs, or apt symbolic correspondences). On this account, as in the James-Lange theory, the perception of bodily changes is constitutive of emotion. Consequently, selective inattention here requires that all incoming material be screened to determine whether it is or is not relevant. This account says that to feel an emotion is to experience oneself as construing an object in a particular way. In order to provide a holistic theoretical overview focusing on unconscious emotions, a review of contemporary theories, models, and measures of emotion is provided. We may relate this to the point made in section Levels of Emotional Awareness about the importance of situational context to the consciousness of emotion: for the emotion to become conscious, the situation that elicited that emotion would need to be accurately represented. To this end, and taking into account the point made above that construal need not be conceptual, I define construal as a way in which an intentional agent experiences or responds to some object, X, where this way of experiencing or responding can be appropriately described by phrases of the form “as Y” or “in terms of Y.”. 7:922. doi: 10.3389/fpsyg.2016.00922, James, W. (1884). Psychiatry 85, 1132–1137. By repressing the second-order construal, one is left with unexplained experiences that constitute the prediction error that drives neurotic symptoms, as postulated by my Freudian version of the Bayesian account of hysteria (Michael, 2018b), described in the introduction. Prefrontal regions orchestrate suppression of emotional memories via a two-phase process. Solms, M., and Friston, K. (2018). doi: 10.1016/j.neubiorev.2016.05.025. But repression prevents the second-order construal that constitutes the consciousness of such emotion from being produced, thereby holding back or ameliorating the escalating series of negative effects that would re-traumatise the agent. Elsewhere he refers to this quantitative factor as “psychical energy” (e.g., Freud, 1900/1957, p. 568) or as the “sum of excitation” (e.g., Breuer and Freud, 1893-1895/1957, p. 86). If this account is correct, then such consciousness involves seeing oneself in a certain way (as having a particular perspective on some object). (2017). There are many possible answers, but I will focus on two that bear on important features of the consciousness of emotion. Free energy and virtual reality in neuroscience and psychoanalysis: a complexity theory of dreaming and mental disorder. While the answer to this question is still open to debate, more and more empirical evidence suggests that humans might have unconscious emotions in certain conditions. Neu, J. Lane et al. “Introduction,” in On Freud’s “The Unconscious”, eds S. Akhtar and M. K. O’Neil (London: Karnac Books), 1–19. Thus, we may update our understanding of the process of repression as follows. Cheolhak 136, 83–108. Further support for the correspondence between second-order construal and the highest level of processing in the LEA model comes from Stevens (2016), who describes several lines of evidence suggesting that the consciousness of emotion is closely associated with rACC activity. Recently, however, there has been a revival of interest in this aspect of psychodynamics due to the work of Karl Friston. Freud, S. (1909/1957). Emotion and Consciousness. Thus, we can interpret Freud’s above assertion as that repression can cause an inaccurate second-order construal of one’s emotion to arise. Sullivan, H. S. (1956). J. We review empirical data on the emotions of deep learning in humans, and suggest three families of unconscious emotions regulating learning. J. J. Strachey (London: Vintage). Q. Emotions: An Essay in Aid of Moral Psychology. In relation to the narrow interpretation of Roberts’ account, which focuses on embodied construal as a way of experiencing some object, this distinction can be stated as that between affective consciousness (feeling in the sense of affective feeling) and the consciousness of the emotion (feeling in the sense of feeling as a construed condition). “Emotions and choice,” in Explaining Emotions, ed. Now an unconscious idea has two values : it is good or it is bad. Expected free energy formalizes conflict underlying defense in Freudian psychoanalysis. doi: 10.18694/kjp.2018.08.136.83, Michael, M. T. (2018b). Gut Reactions: A Perceptual Theory of Emotion. Elsewhere, I have elaborated on this distinction between judgement and construal, and illustrated how it can help solve numerous philosophical problems (Michael, 2018a). View all 9:1264. doi: 10.3389/fpsyg.2018.01264. On this account, repression is the result of an affective signal that triggers a learned higher-order policy for reducing the precision of priors associated with the consciousness of the emotion that produced that affective signal. Breuer, J., and Freud, S. (1893-95/1957). Similarly, the infant is relating to the stranger via her aversion to threatening objects. What’s in the name ‘alexithymia’? Coming up with such an account presents some prima facie problems, the most pertinent of which is avoiding a “homunculus” interpretation. Anatomically, Lane et al. The exploration undertaken in this paper was an attempt to integrate philosophical, psychoanalytic, and neuroscientific viewpoints in addressing a number of interesting problems. Green, A. Oxford: Oxford University Press. The mental concept that is associated with an emotion actually creates the boundaries of that emotion. Why so? 100, 32–51. Once more, the free-energy perspective could be of assistance in addressing this question. How and why consciousness arises: some considerations from physics and physiology. 20, 81–104. Writing about situations of conflict between competing emotions, he proposes the following: In essence, the updating of the generative model after the first experience of conflict means that the conflict state itself becomes reflected at a superordinate level of organisation through the altered precisions. V, ed. Where Roberts’ account becomes most useful for our purpose of understanding unconscious emotion is in relation to the question of how we feel emotions. Emotion is an innate, powerful, and principally unconscious process. doi: 10.1080/15294145.2016.1149777. The topic of unconscious emotion is no mere side-issue to psychoanalysis. Theaters of the Body: A Psychoanalytic Approach to Psychosomatic Illness. Wittgenstein, L. (1953). Alexithymia is a condition characterised by an inability to gain awareness of one’s emotion and to express it in words17. Psychol. Brain 135, 3495–3512. Construal, as I have defined it, is broad enough to encompass embodied non-conceptual construals. Yet, psychologists challenge even that certainty and point out that one’s emotional life can be a mystery, even to oneself. Freudian Repression, the Unconscious, and the Dynamics of Inhibition. Unconscious emotions have been thought to underpin the phenomenon of alexithymia. I believe, however, he is wrong about the assumptions of construal theories. Then the emotion is conscious even in the absence of a second-order construal insofar as those experiences are conscious. Emotions are not conscious but instead manifest in the unconscious mind. The free-energy perspective is useful for understanding what Freud called the “quantitative” dimension of mental activity. “Fragment of an analysis of a case of hysteria,” in The Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud, Vol. What is an emotion? On my interpretation of construal, this is the same as claiming that one construes the snake as dangerous, where this construal is in virtue of a perception of bodily changes4. Emotion and Adaptation. Impact Factor 2.067 | CiteScore 3.2More on impact ›, Free Energy in Psychoanalysis and Neuroscience 4 Subjects are characterized as alexithymics when they systematically show difficulty in identifying or describing their own emotions. doi: 10.1159/000287617. Philos. Panksepp (1998) uses the term “emotional command system” to designate brain systems that, upon certain input, “generate instinctual behaviour output patterns” (p. 28) that can be associated with common emotions (or related states). First, interpreting the way one is experiencing or responding to an object (i.e., the first-order construal) requires an understanding of the situational context. This second solution opens up the possibility of the repression of emotion in a sense that goes beyond those which Freud spoke about, such as the suppression of the emotion. Consider the example of one who feels fear upon seeing a snake. Such a superordinate level would correspond to a part of the Freudian ego, as it is the ego which, according to Freud, controls access to consciousness (Freud, 1926/1957, p. 95). Carhart-Harris, R. L., and Friston, K. J. doi: 10.1093/mind/os-IX.34.188, Kikuchi, H., Fujii, T., Abe, N., Suzuki, M., Takagi, M., Mugikura, S., et al. Int. (1982). “Superego” here relates to high-level responses to one’s self-construal, and “id” relates to the initial instinctual generation of the emotion. Neuropsychoanalysis 15, 5–19. In general, the definition of an emotion is that it is an unconscious idea powered by either a pleasant or an unpleasant feeling. Unconscious emotions may directly affect your decisions, motivation, and behavior. The LEA model may be useful in anchoring some of the ideas presented in the previous section. Rev. Lazarus, R. S. (1991). I provide an interpretation of this account in the context of affective neuroscience and explore the form of Freudian repression that emotions may be subject to under such an interpretation. (2012) put it, “alexithymia is characterised by difficulty to distinguish emotions from bodily sensations” (p. 660), so it is by failing to distinguish emotions from bodily sensations, rather than not feeling those sensations, that the problem (in part) arises. Nevertheless, I do not go as far as some philosophers in considering the two domains to be entirely autonomous. In one, the narrow version, an emotion is constituted by the way one experiences an object, where this experience is coloured by the affect generated in response to the object. Psychother. Can emotions be unconscious? Freud, S. (1900/1957). This kind of appraisal seems pertinent to second-order construal, since such is concerned with representing the meaning derived from one’s affective response to elements in the environment (i.e., one’s first-order construal of those elements). Smith, R., and Lane, R. D. (2015). We can conclude that emotions can be understood as semantic interpretations that put together similar sources and according to the level of the process and of the integration being. Yes, they are. The role of alexithymia in the development of functional motor symptoms (conversion disorder). Interpret Your Dreams Learn to interpret the hidden meanings behind the themes of your dreams and nightmares. Are You Stressed? The idea of unconscious emotion is also supported by evidence from affective neuroscience indicating that subcortical brain systems underlie basic “liking” reactions. Ordinarily, conscious liking (feelings of pleasure) results from the interaction of separate brain systems of conscious awareness with those core processes of unconscious affect. Because this “colouring” is valenced and related to specific behavioural tendencies, it serves as a particular perspective on or evaluation of the object. Thus, (full) suppression of affect cannot co-occur with (full) emotion, since on Freud’s account such suppression prevents the development of the emotion. Memory repression: brain mechanisms underlying dissociative amnesia. This generation of overwhelming affect may be explained in numerous ways, though I have focused on two explanations which draw on important facets of the second-order construal that constitutes the consciousness of an emotion. Hence Prinz’s theory can be seen as a construal theory. The first and second levels of processing described above, associated with activity in the brainstem and insula, correspond most closely with the affect and experience of bodily changes accompanying (and perhaps partly constituting) an emotion13. While such theories were popular for a while, they too encounter problems. As stated, our focus will be on the second level, since it is this which most relates to hysteria, and is the key to understanding Freud’s seemingly paradoxical comments on unconscious emotion. Altered resting state connectivity of the default mode network in alexithymia. As we will see in section Free-Energy and the Process of Repression, this situational dimension can be important in determining why, in some cases, the emotion is repressed. Attachment & Relationships How do our infant relationships affect those we have as we grow older? For example, “studies examining the rACC region in alexithymia [a condition of reduced emotional awareness; see section Evidence From Alexithymia] show a pattern of hypoactivation” (p. 58). The proposal that unconscious emotion involves the repression of a second-order construal of one’s emotion has support from work on alexithymia. The absence of consciousness can come in the form of (1) unawareness of the stimulus eliciting the emotion or (2) unawareness of the emotion itself, producing an emotion that is not subjectively felt. Clinical Studies in Psychiatry. (1990). Boag (2012) articulates this problem in his discussion of an influential account of repression based on Sullivan’s (1956) model of selective inattention, in which awareness involves intensive concentration on a target to the exclusion of other stimuli. More importantly for our purposes, the highest level of processing in the LEA model, associated with the activity of the rACC, corresponds most closely with the second-order construal that constitutes the feeling of an emotion on Roberts’ account, for it is at this level that meaning is assigned to the emotional episode. (2004). Mind 9, 188–205. We begin with a philosophical account of emotion. Rather an emotion needs to be understood in relation to a situational context, for, on the construal view of emotion, the emotion is an evaluation of some stimulus, where the nature of that evaluation depends on the wider circumstances in which that stimulus arose (Eickers et al., 2017). An important issue is accounting for irrational emotions (Stocker and Hegeman, 1992). The repression of the consciousness of an emotion is an active process that seeks to reduce attention on – or the precision of one’s model of (as we will see in section Free-Energy and the Process of Repression) – how one is experiencing or responding to the object of the emotion. I postulate that a roughly similar model can help explain the repression of the consciousness of emotions. Freud, S. (1915/1957). Biobehav. “The unconscious,” in The Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud, Vol. This is, on my Bayesian account of hysteria (2018b), what purportedly happens with hysterical symptoms: a representation at a middle level of a hierarchical generative model, to the effect that the patient has a particular symptom, becomes entrenched due to excessively high precision being afforded to it, thereby coming to generate the symptom. A fundamental difference between feelings and emotions is that feelings are experienced consciously, while emotions manifest either consciously or subconsciously. X, ed. Philosophical Investigations. doi: 10.1126/science.1139560, Edwards, M. J., Adams, R. A., Brown, H., Parees, I., and Friston, K. J. The neural basis of one’s own conscious and unconscious emotional states. II, ed. Furthermore, the perceived “relevance” (or “irrelevance”) of stimuli is a judgement, which cannot preclude both awareness and evaluation of target material (though this need not be conscious itself). At the same time this is understood as one’s way of experiencing or responding to the object. Boag, S. (2012). In cases where the model has an abnormally high precision, prediction error has little effect, and the representations given by the model become entrenched. Polyphasic sleep patterns, daytime naps and their impact on performance. The most pertinent concerns the intuition, shared by Freud, that consciousness is essential to emotion, which makes the idea of unconscious emotion seem paradoxical. The second, the middle level, corresponds to the second-order construal that constitutes the consciousness of the emotion. XII, ed. It alerts us to problems but doesn't bother us with processes that don't require conscious attention. It, moreover, complements my Freudian version of the Bayesian account of hysteria, for it is precisely due to the repression of the consciousness of an emotion that hysterics are left with the unexplained affect – hence prediction error – that leads to the formation of symptoms. Anger helps us get the upper hand in the conflict and even protect our rights. For Lazarus (1991), emotions involve appraisals, in the form of evaluations that he calls “core relational themes.” For example, anger involves appraising some object as having caused “a demeaning offence against me or mine”; fright involves “facing an immediate, concrete, and overwhelming physical danger”; and disgust involves “taking in or being too close to an indigestible object or idea” (Lazarus, 1991, p. 122). In the cases we are considering, however, such situations have to do with memories that have been repressed, hence from the free-energy perspective have priors with low precision. Affective agnosia: expansion of the alexithymia construct and a new opportunity to integrate and extend Freud’s legacy. On Roberts’ account, however, emotions need not involve judgements. Psychol. Freud, S. (1919/1957). (2012). Oxford: Oxford University Press. (1989). Nevertheless, as we proceed, it is worth having both accounts in mind, as the first account, even if incorrect, will help as understand why many, like Freud, have seen the idea of unconscious emotion as paradoxical. Cortex 23, 833––846. doi: 10.1177/0003065112474066, Taylor, G. J., Bagby, R. M., and Parker, J. D. (2016). Privacy & Cookies As a result, when the memory, and hence the accompanying emotion, is unconsciously triggered, the patient may experience the bodily feelings generated by the emotion, but these feelings lack any explanation due to the unconsciousness of the emotion. Normally, the consciousness of an emotion is adaptive, as it helps in the regulation of the emotion (hence the reduction of prediction error). Psychol., 21 May 2020 Love’s Knowledge. If more precision is given to the prediction error, then the model will be revised to a greater extent; if more precision is given to the model, then the prediction error will have less impact on revision. “Psycho-analytic notes on an autobiographical account of a case of paranoia,” in The Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud, Vol. Take the example of watching a horror movie at home – even though you are in a very safe environment and there is nothing to be scared of you might get nervous and frightened. So, emotions are something that is felt and manifested in the unconscious mind, while feelings are both emotional experiences and physical sensations that tend to linger and “soak in.” So, for example, if you have a fear of ghosts or the dark, you might also have an underlying fear of death. This holds even if we adopt the narrow account of emotion described above, whereby consciousness – in the form of affective feelings – is essential to emotion. This is the problem of explaining a particular mental process, such as repression, without treating some part of the brain as agent-like, in the sense of possessing psychological states and engaging in choices and actions – in other words, as an agent within the agent. Philosophy Psychiatry Psychology 11, 175–186. I use this cumbersome phrase to hone in on the form of repression at stake. XVII, ed. Psychol. 55, 124–134. The sensory stimuli which would previously have generated the conflict state of uncertainty now generates the defence state that privileges one response over another. Front. In order to motivate the account of emotion I will be presenting in this paper, I will first briefly offer some historical context. doi: 10.1002/j.2167-4086.2004.tb00154.x, Gulpek, D., Kelemence Kaplan, F., Kesebir, S., and Bora, O. Henceforth I will refer to the first possibility, in which a construal and hence an emotion are constituted by the way an agent experiences an object, as a narrow account of construal and emotion, and the second possibility, in which a construal and hence an emotion are constituted by an organism’s response to an object, as a broad account of construal and emotion10. As Liemburg et al. doi: 10.1080/00207578.2018.1489705. The important points remain applicable even in the absence of direct conflict between competing emotions. Negative emotions, in particular, can help you recognize threats (Zein, Wyatt and Grezes, 2015) and feel prepared to positively handle potential dangers (Biswas-Diener and Kashdan, 2014). This is that the “proper representative” of the emotion is the second-order construal that constitutes the consciousness of an emotion. This interpretation has some nice features. An embodied construal of this kind has the intentional (in the sense of being about some object) and evaluative character of emotion, in that it represents the evaluation of an object. Am. The second and more important solution to the paradox draws on Roberts’ account of what it means to feel an emotion. Hence, in a more literal sense than that provided by the standard interpretation, an “emotional impulse is perceived but misconstrued.”. Struggle to keep conversations alive? The account, proposed by Roberts (1988, 2003), is that emotions are concern-based construals. It is this sense of feeling that, according to Roberts, is most relevant to the locution “feeling an emotion.” Thus, feeling our emotion involves a construal of our construal. 68, 1006–1020. As Roberts (1988, pp. The mental concepts of emotions are not normally a part of our awareness. The proposal is that this stimulus triggers a basic emotional command system, thereby setting in motion physiological changes preparing the body for a particular kind of behavioural response – possibly alongside cognitive changes, such as changes in the “style and level of efficiency of cognitive process” (Damasio, 1994, p. 163) – pertinent to the basic emotion triggered. It is therefore tempting to see these feelings (plus related memories, fantasies, beliefs, and so on) as thereby constituting the “colouring” with which some object (e.g., a person) is experienced. If this account is correct, then it demonstrates the important role that unconscious emotion plays in the emergence of the kind of phenomena that psychoanalysis was first designed to address. Psychother. Descartes’ Error: Emotion, Reason, and the Human Brain. The other part of what constitutes an emotion, on Roberts’ account, is concern. In other words, emotions are embodied appraisals: “They represent core relational themes, but they do so by perceiving bodily changes” (p. 68). Elsewhere (Michael, 2018a, 2019b), I have argued that construal need not be conceptual in character – that is, the Y element need not involve concepts. While the answer to this question is still open to debate, more and more empirical evidence suggests that humans might have unconscious emotions in certain conditions. Barrett, L. F. (2017). If we equate this with the consciousness of an emotion, then we see how one can have an emotion without being conscious of it. An example of this is given by Prosser et al. J. Strachey (London: Vintage). While resembling cognitions in respect of representing evaluations, they can consist solely of conscious feelings. Thus, to feel angry at Sally is to construe2 oneself as [construing1] Sally as having culpably offended in some matter that one strongly cares about. Articles, University College London, United Kingdom. Unconscious emotions are of central importance to psychoanalysis. They do, however, raise conceptual problems. To learn how people react to upsetting situations and respond to others around them, the researchers examined people’s anger toward politically charged events in a series of laboratory studies with 107 participants. The intermediate level involves integrating these first-level processes into coherent patterns, ultimately “patterns of one’s entire bodily state across organs, muscles, and so forth” (p. 599). E. N. Zalta (Stanford, CA: The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). In this, the emotion whose unconsciousness leads to unexplained affect is unconscious due to being intimately connected with a repressed traumatic memory. McDougall, J. Emotions are not unique to any particular individual, so the mental concepts that underlie them come from the unconscious mind. 2. It has often been cited in the philosophical literature on emotions as exemplifying unconscious emotion. This ideally suits them to an account of emotion, since, as we have seen, emotion has been analysed by some as a cognition and by others as a feeling, thus defining emotion in terms of construal allows for a compromise between these two positions.
