L’anticipazione cognitiva delle emozioni. Reazioni primitive e grammatica nella riflessione di Ludwig Wittgenstein

Luca Marchetti


This paper aims at showing in which way Wittgenstein’s thought can help us understand the cognitive nature of emotions.

Secondly, we will try to show that the cognitive value of emotions is not that of producing specific knowledge, but generating attentional patterns for a possible knowledge.
