Reframing the Role of Cognition in Emotion
Craig DeLancey works on emotion. His book, Passionate
what our best scientific understanding of emotions can tell us about
problems in the philosophy of mind. While at the Center, he
has been exploring the role of emotions in decision making.
This work includes the use of simulations to develop evolutionary
game theory models that describe how certain emotional strategies
may come to dominate other decision making strategies. He
hopes these simulations will also spontaneously generate a book
by the end of the year. Or maybe next year.
Craig's other interests include functional explanation, the role
of complexity and complex systems in ontology, and simplicity.
Craig is an assistant professor of Philosophy at SUNY Oswego.
He is married and has a 6 year old daughter Aletheia. When
not working he likes to hunt Paleozoic fossils (because the Mesozoic
is so overrated).
