Example text

Interestingly, Probyn uses here the notion of experience, which directs affects away from bodily sensations to reasoning. This is perhaps the most significant split between feminist affect studies and critical affect studies in general: are emotions/affects/feelings connected primarily to bodily sensations or to cognition? Lawrence Grossberg (2010, 316) formulated this division clearly when emphasizing emotion as the articulation of affect as ideology: “Emotion is the ideological attempt to make sense of some affective production.

Affect in this understanding is seen, not so much a stage as an ongoing passage from one state to another (140). Within these broad aspects there are, however, several different understandings and definitions of the concept. After some decades of intensified theoretical discussion within affect studies, affect and emotion are not used interchangeably in the majority of definitions and interpretations; rather, scholars defend a preference for one or the other. Sometimes scholars see affect and emotion as two aspects of the same phenomenon: for example, Rei Terada (2001, 4) writes that “by emotion we usually mean a psychological, at least minimally interpretive experience whose physiological aspect is affect”, and she combines these two notions within the category of feeling, which she thinks is a wide-ranging term that indicates both physiological sensations (affects) and psychological states (emotions).

Third, affect is assumed to lie between the former two. Bertelsen and Murphie refer here to Baruch Spinoza’s statement of affect as “power to affect and be affected,” a definition that many scholars in spite of philosophical strand have adopted. Affect in this understanding is seen, not so much a stage as an ongoing passage from one state to another (140). Within these broad aspects there are, however, several different understandings and definitions of the concept. After some decades of intensified theoretical discussion within affect studies, affect and emotion are not used interchangeably in the majority of definitions and interpretations; rather, scholars defend a preference for one or the other.
