This work provides a critical review of different theoretical perspectives (functional, somatic, cognitive) on emotions, their components, and their motivational and functional implications. Special attention is devoted to the cognitive approaches, the problems raised by the emotion-cognition dichotomy, and the recent attempts made within the psychosocial disciplines and the neurosciences to solve such dichotomy.
