Introduction and Synopsis

We will see also that the second kind of explanation of depression, as a form of illness, may be appropriate. We will not however be able to entertain that possibility until we have addressed a further set of questions. If the constellation of emotions, beliefs, or behaviours, seen in depression is not linked to the rest of a person's life or experiences, is there a difference between this and their other mental states which we readily think of as meaningful For instance if I was happy last year because I got a good new job, and now I am depressed for no apparent reason, was the job really the cause of my happiness, or was my happiness as inexplicable as my depression If I suppose that my depression arose from an abnormality of my brain function, could I then put last year's happiness down to brain function This has a certain appeal because it must have involved alterations in brain function, but does that mean that the new job was not really part of the causal chain As we shall see...

Some Major Factor Models

Four other factors round out the five-factor model. Definitions of each factor and their facet traits are described in Costa and McCrae (1992) and paraphrased here. The second factor, extroversion, includes the facets of warmth, a tendency to be affectionate and friendly gregariousness, a tendency to seek social stimulation assertiveness, a tendency to be dominant and forceful activity, a tendency toward movement and energy excitement seeking, a tendency to crave stimulation and positive emotions, a tendency toward joy, happiness, love, and optimism. The third factor, openness to experience,

Sexuality and repression

Freud remained convinced that sexual satisfaction was the key to happiness, and that what was wrong with the neurotic was failure to achieve a normal sex life. This central conviction had two roots. In his autobiographical study, Freud acknowledges his debt to the ideas of G.T. Fechner, a professor of physics and then philosophy at Leipzig University. During the course of a manic-depressive illness, Fechner introduced the idea of a universal 'pleasure principle', which Freud adopted. Freud also took from Fechner the notion of a 'principle of constancy', the idea that the main function of the mental apparatus was to bring about the discharge of instinctual tension in order to maintain stability. Freud thought that one dominating principle governing human behaviour was the need to reach a state of tensionless tranquillity (he called it the Nirvana principle). Freud treated powerful emotions as disturbances to be abolished rather than as pleasures to be sought. He seems to have been...

Neurobiology of normal emotion

(norepinephrine), together with serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT). 3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA, ecstasy), which more specifically releases 5-HT,(3 has profound effects on mood, activity, and sleep. Ecstasy's particular selectivity for 5-HT neurones may be directly linked to mood modulation its effects are valued precisely for the sense of contact, happiness, and pleasure that is evoked. Such effects will ultimately be framed in terms of chemical addressing in particular brain regions (see Ch 2ter

Human Values The Issue of Origins

It is apparent that emotions - from the simple background emotions to the primary emotions such as happiness and sadness, fear and anger, surprise and disgust, as well as the more elaborate social emotions - are related to states of homeostatic regulation and bring together action programs that assist homeostatic regulation directly or indirectly. All emotions can play an important role in social processes, intervening to alert individuals to impending problems, to correct possible problems, or to reward effective solutions. These roles are especially apparent for the social emotions and their ensuing feelings. We are referring here to a large group of emotions, among which the prominent exemplars are compassion or sympathy, an emotion related to a concern for others that commonly results in feelings of empathy the emotions of embarrassment, shame, and guilt, all concerned in one way or another with the blaming of the self for some action that violated social norms the emotions of...

Arbitrary Phenomenal Properties

One might try to give a general definition of an NCC of various states of consciousness, of which each of the above would be a special case. To do this, one would need a general way of thinking about arbitrary states of consciousness. Perhaps the best way is to think in terms of arbitrary phenomenal properties. For any distinctive kind of conscious experience, there will be a corresponding phenomenal property in essence, the property of having a conscious experience of that kind. For example, being in a hypnotic state of consciousness is a phenomenal property having a visual experience of a horizontal line is a phenomenal property feeling intense happiness is a phenomenal property feeling a throbbing pain is a phenomenal property being conscious is a phenomenal property. Phenomenal properties can be as coarse-grained or as fine-grained as you like, so long as they are wholly determined by the current conscious state of the subject.

Letter 39 To Th Huxley

Thank you for your abstract of your lecture at the Royal Institution, which interested me much, and rather grieved me, for I had hoped things had been in a slight degree otherwise. (40 1. On certain Zoological Arguments commonly adduced in favour of the hypothesis of the Progressive Development of Animal Life, Discourse, Friday, April 20, 1855 Proceedings R.I. (1855). Published also in Huxley's Scientific Memoirs. The lecturer dwelt chiefly on the argument of Agassiz, which he summarises as follows Homocercal fishes have in their embryonic state heterocercal tails therefore heterocercality is, so far, a mark of an embryonic state as compared with homocercality, and the earlier heterocercal fish are embryonic as compared with the later homocercal. He shows that facts do not support this view, and concludes generally that there is no real parallel between the successive forms assumed in the development of the life of the individual at present and those which have appeared at different...

Selfperspective As The Default Mode

The ability to take the psychological perspective of the other is considered an indispensable element in the fully developed mature theory of mind. Developmental research also indicates that perspective-taking ability develops gradually. In the affective domain, it is around 18 months that children demonstrate an emerging awareness of the subjectivity of other people's emotions. By that age, infants seem to understand, for instance, that they should give an experimenter a piece of food that the experimenter reacts to with apparent happiness (e.g., broccoli) rather than one toward which the experimenter acts disgusted (e.g., crackers), even when they themselves prefer the latter food in contrast, 14-month-olds do not show this understanding (Repacholi & Gopnik, 1997). This finding appears to be the first empirical evidence that infants of this age have at least some limited ability to reason non-egocentrically about people's desires (Flavell, 1999). However, the mere fact that peo

Pharmacological Actions Central Nervous System

Marijuana produces a distinctive behavioral syndrome that is easily distinguished from that of most other drugs. The most prominent feature is the initial period of euphoria, or high, which has been described as a sense of well-being and happiness. Euphoria is frequently followed by a period of drowsiness or sedation. Perception of time is altered, along with distortions in both hearing and vision. However, illusions and hallucinations occur infrequently. The subjective effects also include dissociation of ideas.

Termination issues including relapse prevention

However, the real risk in short-term CBT for depression is that the therapy will merely have been palliative, and not have dealt with the high risk of relapse which runs at approximately 50 over 2 years after recovery from depression (e.g., Hammen, 1997). Therefore, one of the tasks towards the end of CBT is to develop potential relapse-prevention measures with clients, which include the identification of and working through potential high-risk situations (e.g., Segal et al., 2002). An additional focus of relapse prevention is the client's reactions to such situations. For example, if a client begins to feel miserable because of an upset at work, but then begins to worry that feeling moderately miserable means that serious long-term depression will inevitably follow, a vicious cycle downward will have begun that pulls the client further into depression (cf. Teasdale, 1988). The focus of relapse prevention should therefore be both on the likely events or situations that will lead to...

Evidencebased Strategies Behavior And Affective Displays

From our earliest days, we are voracious and deft observers of ordinary human behavior. This consumption of overt acts is often in the service of intuiting unseen mental states. Work by Meltzoff and colleagues (e.g., Meltzoff & Brooks, 2001), for instance, shows that by even 6 months of age infants know that a grabbing hand entails wanting. When adults view an impoverished cartoon in which animated dots represent a person's arm and hand knocking on a door, they can readily intuit the phantom knocker's fear, excitement, and happiness (Pollick, Paterson, Bruderlin, & Sanford, 2001). From the smallest arch of a teasing eyebrow to the profound slouch of a disinterested onlooker, we fluidly intuit what others think from even the smallest scraps of static and dynamic evidence.

Emotion understanding

These two ways of recognizing emotions are experientially radically different. With the first, the observer understands the emotions expressed by others but does not feel them. He deduces them. A certain facial or body pattern means fear, another happiness, and that is it. No emotional involvement. Different is the case for sensory-motor mapping mechanism. In this case, the recognition occurs because

Letter 143 To Hugh Falconer

On my return home yesterday I found your letter and MS., which I have read with extreme interest. Your note and every word in your paper are expressed with the same kind feeling which I have experienced from you ever since I have had the happiness of knowing you. I value scientific praise, but I value incomparably higher such kind feeling as yours. There is not a single word in your paper to which I could possibly object I should be mad to do so its only fault is perhaps its too great kindness. Your case seems the most striking one which I have met with of the persistence of specific characters. It is very much the more striking as it relates to the molar teeth, which differ so much in the species of the genus, and in which consequently I should have expected variation. As I read on I felt not a little dumbfounded, and thought to myself that whenever I came to this subject I should have to be savage against myself and I wondered how savage you would be. I trembled a little. My only...

Transition to adult life

For those who remain at home, the other children in the family leave home as expected, leaving their mentally retarded brother or sister in what one mother described as 'a ghetto of the middle aged'. However, in many families, the provision of good further education programmes or day centres plus club or leisure activities can lead to a liberation and more happiness for all members of the family. Once more it is those with severe behaviour difficulties who are not accepted by further education establishments and who become increasingly frustrated and difficult to manage at home.

The Self Defeating Masochistic Personality

Classical psychoanalysis views the masochist as actively and repetitively searching for circumstances that lead to suffering or even destruction. From the outside, such persons seem gratified by misfortune, failure, or humiliation, preferring instead to be disgraced, victimized, or even ruined. Driven by a success neurosis, they experience favorable outcomes as producing anxiety and guilt, not pleasure and happiness.

Letter 133 To Henry Fawcett

I received several days ago two large packets, but have as yet read only your letter for we have been in fearful distress, and I could attend to nothing. Our poor boy had the rare case of second rash and sore throat and, as if this was not enough, a most serious attack of erysipelas, with typhoid symptoms. I despaired of his life but this evening he has eaten one mouthful, and I think has passed the crisis. He has lived on port wine every three-quarters of an hour, day and night. This evening, to our astonishment, he asked whether his stamps were safe, and I told him of one sent by you, and that he should see it to-morrow. He answered, I should awfully like to see it now so with difficulty he opened his eyelids and glanced at it, and, with a sigh of satisfaction, said, All right. Children are one's greatest happiness, but often and often a still greater misery. A man of science ought to have none--perhaps not a wife for then there would be nothing in this wide world worth caring for,...

Selfmonitoring And Prodromal Changes

One of the difficulties described by many patients is that of developing hypervigilance against minor changes in mood and their misinterpretation as onset of a manic episode rather than an accurate reflection of ordinary happiness, a mistake which can lead to inappropriate safety behaviours and avoidance. Within a cognitive behavioural framework, this can be avoided by teaching patients to monitor their mood on an ongoing basis, using individualised mood-monitoring tools that allow patients to look out for several specific prodromal signs in connection with actual environmental stressors and events, in order to avoid the generalisation of mood changes. Patients may also learn to employ coping strategies in response to prodromal changes that are appropriate to the mood changes observed. These coping strategies include activity schedules, the observation of sleep and dietary routines, the practice of relaxation exercises and graded task assignments, time-delay rules and problem-solving...

Variations of the Paranoid Personality

Obdurate paranoids combine aspects of the paranoid and compulsive personalities, but like all paranoid patterns, they are more unstable and pathological than their compulsive counterparts. Like the compulsive, they are rigid, perfectionistic, grim, humorless, tense, overcontrolled, small-minded, peevish, legalistic, and self-righteous. However, whereas compulsives temper their angst with the belief that success and happiness can be achieved by conforming to the dictates of authority, obdurate paranoids renounce this dependency, taking on a posture of unabashed self-assertion. They actively rebel against any and all external constraints in a maladaptive effort to regain their sense of perceived control and overturn injustices previously doled out on them.

Autism And Theory Of Mind

Individuals with autism have been consistently reported to perform poorly on theory-of-mind tasks, yet show preserved capacities in other domains (see Baron-Cohen, 1995, for a review). For example, these individuals fail to appreciate the distinction between beliefs and reality, yet understand that photographs can misrepresent current reality (Charman & Baron-Cohen, 1995 Leekam & Perner, 1991). Autistic individuals, while insensitive to other people's beliefs, demonstrate an understanding of other people's basic emotions (e.g., happiness and sadness1 BaronCohen, 1991 Baron-Cohen, Spitz, & Cross, 1993). Finally, autistic individuals who fail to appreciate knowing nevertheless understand seeing (Baron-Cohen & Goodhart, 1994 Leslie & Frith, 1988) these individuals demonstrate an understanding that different observers see the same object in different ways, depending on how each observer is spatially located relative to the seen object (Reed, 1994 Reed & Peterson, 1990 Tan & Harris, 1991),...

Investigating Cognitive Abnormalities in Posttraumatic Stress Disorder

Clinical researchers need to increase the attention given to these issues and to realise that it is essential to differentiate between malingered and genuine PTSD symptoms. Therefore, psychometric instruments for the evaluation of malingered PTSD are needed. One promising test is the Morel Emotional Numbing Test (MENT) 40 . This is a forced-choice task to detect response bias in PTSD assessments. Updated in 2004 41 , it consists of 60 two-alternative items. Briefly, the test uses 20 coloured slides of 10 facial expressions posed by a man and a woman. Their expressions reflect happiness, frustration, sadness, anger, fear, calmness, surprise, shyness, confusion, and sleepiness. The slides are presented on a computer screen along with verbal labels describing emotions. The participant is instructed to identify the emotion word that best matches the expression portrayed on the slide. In a first series of 20 trials, participants see one slide on the computer screen and are asked to circle...

Pharmacological Aspects

PCP is unique in terms of its hallucinogenic properties and its other pharmacological effects. It possesses CNS stimulatory actions, but it is also a dissociative anesthetic. It induces a wide variety of psychotomimetic and hallucinatory effects during emergence from anesthesia. Because it possesses CNS stimulant properties comparable with those of amphetamine, it does not produce depression of the cardiovascular system like other anesthetics, though it does depress the respiratory system. At a low dose, individuals believe they are thinking and acting rapidly and efficiently. The general mood is happiness, though (especially at higher doses) the individual can vacillate between euphoria and depression. It primarily produces auditory hallucinations. At higher doses the stimulatory effects are more pronounced and the likelihood of tremendous mood swings more likely. At near anesthetic doses, it produces more typical depressant effects, including motor incoordination, catalepsy, vacant...

Letter 31 Jd Hooker To Charles Darwin

I have been asked by some of your friends (eighteen in number) to inform you that they have placed, through Robarts, Lubbock & Co., the sum of 2,100 pounds to your account at your bankers. We have done this to enable you to get such complete rest as you may require for the re-establishment of your health and in doing this we are convinced that we act for the public interest, as well as in accordance with our most earnest desires. Let me assure you that we are all your warm personal friends, and that there is not a stranger or mere acquaintance amongst us. If you could have heard what was said, or could have read what was, as I believe, our inmost thoughts, you would know that we all feel towards you, as we should to an honoured and much loved brother. I am sure that you will return this feeling, and will therefore be glad to give us the opportunity of aiding you in some degree, as this will be a happiness to us to the last day of our lives. Let me add that our plan occurred to several...

Preface from the Editor

The Frosst family and Merck-Frosst Canada for their interest in our work and the granting institutions which make it possible, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, and the US Alzheimer's Association. Finally, I would like to say thank you to Martha, my wife and best friend, for her love and fortitude, and to my daughters, Paula and Karina, for bringing us so much happiness, and also for their patient ears to Papa's dreams.

Moral Philosophy

As an example, one could define the virtues defined by Aristotle as supracultural values (3). His basic presumption was that every art and inquiry, every action and choice was thought to aim at some good . This good was meant as good in itself''. This good was connected with happiness. It was an activity of the soul in conformity with excellence, the best form of excellence. Moral excellence means that we must have knowledge and choices, and any action must proceed from a firm and unchangeable state. The best state is the intermediate between excess and deficit. It is a position equidistant from each of two extremes. Moral excellence is the consequence of a choice, determined by reason the reason of a man of practical wisdom. Virtue was a mean between two vices. But one should accept that every culture explains and applies these virtues in its own way. We don't even know exactly how they were understood at the time and place of their conception.


Hypomania can be the first stage of a spiralling upswing of mood (Box 2). The main symptom of hypomania is usually intense well being but irritability is also seen. Normal happiness is transient, lasting from minutes to hours. To be diagnosed as hypomania, the elevation of mood must last for at least 4 days. The change of mood is often quite different from any seen when the patient is well.

Free Will

The point is that reasons must come to an end. It's conceivable that the end could be located somewhere else. The robot could believe that the happiness (or, as decision theorists say, the utility ) of its owners is the highest purpose, and thus want to preserve itself only as long as it believes that preserving itself is likely to cause its owners more happiness than the alternatives in the present circumstances. But it's hard to visualize this scheme working. Most of the time the robot cannot judge all the factors contributing to the happiness of its owners, or how its preservation would affect them. It's going to be more practical to have it want self-preservation unless that directly contradicts an order from the owner.

Daily activities

In the case of some depressed clients, it is not the reduction in activity that is the problem, but rather the excessive focus on one type of activity. The classic case is that of the workaholic whose waking hours are all spent in the pursuit of ambition and success, often of an unrealistic nature. In such cases, the activities schedule is full of so-called mastery items, but there is an absence of pleasurable activities. The focus on one dominant role or goal and the undervaluing of other roles and goals is, of course, a classic presentation in depression (e.g., Champion & Power, 1995), so the therapist may have to identify and explore long-held quasi-religious beliefs about the importance of such an approach. Indeed, the focus of therapy may become those schematic models that lead the person to exclude happiness or pleasure from day-to-day life.

Special diets

As I have already written in previous chapters, Luke, Ben and Joe are on special diets and I am sure many of you reading this have children who also have special dietary needs for whatever reason. Whilst in an ideal world, families of children on special diets would all eat the same foods and everyone would bake together and eat together in a perfect picture of family harmony and happiness, some things just are not ideal

And Anxiety

Depression and anxiety are disorders where the individual can no longer control her psychic energy. From this perspective loss of capacity to control one's own energy leads to affective symptoms because energy control is necessary to achieve desired emotional states such as satisfaction and happiness. In the phenomenological tradition these states are called flows and are characterized by individual, goal-directed activities where the individual loses her sense of time, sees the activity as of value in itself and becomes free from worries (8,19). According to Csikszentmihalyi (19), a state of flow is when Your mind isn't wandering, you are not thinking of something else you are totally involved with what you are doing. Your energy is flowing very smoothly. You feel relaxed, comfortable and energetic''.

Letter 9 To C Lyell

I determined when last at Maer to try my chance, but I hardly expected such good fortune would turn up for me. I shall be in town in the middle or latter end of the ensuing week. (9 2. Mr. Darwin was married on January 29th, 1839 (see Life and Letters, I., page 299). The present letter was written the day after he had become engaged.) I fear you will say I might very well have left my story untold till we met. But I deeply feel your kindness and friendship towards me, which in truth I may say, has been one chief source of happiness to me, ever since my return to England so you must excuse me. I am well sure that Mrs. Lyell, who has sympathy for every one near her, will give me her hearty congratulations. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed my Maer visit,--I felt in anticipation my future tranquil life how I do hope you may be as happy as I know I shall be but it frightens me, as often as I think of what a family you have been one of. I was thinking this morning how it came, that I,...
