Abstract and Keywords
This article is broadly concerned with the fruitfulness of the intercourse between science and philosophy. It approaches this by focusing more narrowly, first, on a sampling of approaches adopted by practitioners of emotion science, and, secondly, on two specific sample problems. Of those two, one represents a time-worn philosophical puzzle, while the other is relatively new. The verdict will be mixed. Throughout the history of our subject, philosophers have claimed certainty for propositions regarded as necessarily true, but contradicted with equal aplomb by other philosophers. In this respect, philosophy's record is only slightly better than that of theology.
