Emotion as Meaning offers a new model of the mind based upon a new
understanding of emotion. It resolves the debate between the
imagists and the propositionalists by tracing the translation of
language into vicarious experience, showing that the mind
represents the imagined world by means of not only image and idea,
but emotion. Emotion as Meaning surveys existing theories of mental
representation and demonstrates its thesis by analyzing the mind's
construction of several literary texts. Some readers will
appreciate this book as a definition of a new criticism based on
the analysis of emotion. Others will appreciate it as a survey of
the literature on emotion and mental representation. All readers
will appreciate its demonstration of the existence of the affective
code, which requires a radical revision in our currently accepted
models of the mind.
