  • The a priori nature of Fredrickson's theory of emotions
Útdráttur: 
  • The broaden-and-build theory of emotions, formulated by Barbara Fredrickson, aims
    to provide a better understanding of the value of positive emotions. Fredrickson
    claims positive emotions fuel personal well-being and human flourishing by
    broadening thought-action repertoires, thereby undoing the effects of negative
    emotions and increasing psychological resilience and personal resources. To provide
    support for the theory has Fredrickson gathered a vast amount of experimental data. Here it is argued that the broaden-and-build
    theory is essentially pseudo-empirical and that the experimental data amassed by
    Fredrickson carries no bearing on the truth value of the theory. The theory is a set of
    commonsense theorems and therefore not empirical but a priori.
