Thagard argues that an understanding of emotional thinking needs to integrate the cognitive, neural, molecular, and social levels. Many of the chapters employ computational models of various levels of thinking, including HOTCO (hot cognition) models and the more neurologically realistic GAGE model. Thagard uses these models to illuminate thinking in the domains of law, science, and religion, discussing such topics as the role of doubt and reasonable doubt in legal and other contexts, valuable emotional habits for successful scientists, and the emotional content of religious beliefs. Identifying and assessing the impact of emotion, Thagard argues, can suggest ways to improve the process of reasoning.
Impressively comprehensive, unfailingly sensible, and made all the more appealing by its hip-pocket readability, Hot Thought will be a godsend to instructors in philosophy and cognitive science. -- Patricia S. Churchland, UC President's Professor of Philosophy, University of California, San Diego The influence of emotions on thinking is currently a lively topic in cognitive science. In his unique work on this issue -- combining psychology, philosophy, and computational modeling Paul Thagard has both analyzed real-life issues and advanced our theoretical understanding. This important collection of his articles should not be missed. -- Keith Oatley, University of Toronto
