Emotion is differentiated from feeling, in that, as noted, emotion is a psycho-physiological state that moves an organism to action.
Emotions are mammalian elaborations of vertebrate arousal patterns, in which neurochemicals (e.g., dopamine, noradrenaline, and serotonin) step-up or step-down the brain's activity level, as visible in body movements, gestures, and postures.
The human emotion of love is said to have evolved from paleocircuits of the mammalian brain (specifically, modules of the cingulated gyrus) designed for the care, feeding, and grooming of offspring.
Emotion, Movement and Psychological Space (4841 words)
The logos of emotion begins in the pre-articulated experience of 'being moved' in some manner, yet, the already understood, implicit, lived ways of being-in-the-world as emotional are also shaped by the articulation of meaning through language..
From the second connotation, emotion is distinguished as a departure from the "norm," the calm that exists prior to the emergence of a potential movement.
Emotion, as a human phenomenon -- thus, as an existential -- must invariably be understood in terms of all of the existentials which, equiprimordially, compose the fabric of human existence.
