Aristotle followed in this tradition but added a very important idea in his book Rhetoric (Aristotle, 1941, Book II)—namely, that how one construes an event causes our emotional reaction to it. He wrote, for example, that anger is the result of the subjective interpretation that we have been slighted by another, and this causes our desire for revenge. Thus, Aristotle treated cognition as in the service of emotion as well as its regulator. This treatment is, to my knowledge, the earliest version of what today we call cognitive mediation.
Goal patterns and belief systems, learned earlier in life, are also structures—they are relatively stable over time. Along with environmental conditions, they influence decisions and shape our thoughts, emotions, and actions, which are processes that serve adaptation. To some extent, goals and beliefs are also capable of changing as life circumstances change. We know relatively little about how such change is brought about and to what extent particular person properties are capable of change or resisting it.
Recently, however, I have become less sanguine about the prospect that a systems theory agenda can actually be accomplished and increasingly concerned about some of its metatheoretical and practical problems. This has led me to explore the possibilities inherent in a narrative approach to stress, emotion, and adaptation. The problems of systems theory in seeking an understanding of persons and their emotional lives, and the advantages of a narrative approach for unifying variable and person approaches, are discussed in chapter 8, where I examine where the science of a narrative psychology of the emotions might stand.
