Abstract: Discusses theoretical problems of subjective aspects of emotions-awareness of one's own emotional states-from the standpoint of William James's theory of emotion and examines other views in the light of James's theory. 3 major topics are examined: (a) emotional experiences as arising from physiological correlates of emotion; (b) cognitive components and cognitive causation of emotion; and (c) the role of overt behavior in regulation of emotion, considering N. Bull's attitude theory of emotion and M. B. Arnold's notion of central efferent readiness. (Spanish abstract) (58 ref) ((c) 1999 APA/PsycINFO, all rights reserved)
