Author Profile


In this paper, the author theoretically elaborated on the Emotion-Involved Processing Hypothesis (Kanazawa, 2021 in Sage Open) via three fundamental questions. Utilizing the undereappreciated phaneroscopic categories of Charles Sanders Peirce and via a plethora of previous findings in psychology, philosophy, and neuroscience, the author proposed a novel and promising conceptual framework of Monadic, Dyadic, and Triadic Emotions that has multiple advantages and significant potentiality for applying in different disciplinary investigations on emotion. The trans-disciplinary potentiality of the conceptual framework proposed in this manuscript will not only intrigue readers from diverse academic domains but also provide alternative analysis perspectives to help researchers delve deeper into conceptualizing emotions and giving rationales to research findings.
