Abstract

This chapter presents the text of the conversion between a roboticist and a theoretical neurobiologist about the issue of emotion. The roboticist suggested that it would be useful to have a list of definitions of key terms on the subject of emotion that takes into account logical alternative views. The theoretical neurobiologist argued that there is a linguistic risk in defining terms such as emotions, and that even if definitions were established there would still be possible problems in achieving consensus.
