You are welcome. Your concerns are very important. Perhaps we can
try to put language as a key word to this topic, based in your observation.
I remember LSV saying about the first language function be not "express
emotions" but "asking for help"... (1931 - History of development of
higher psychic functions)... But this can seems something contradictory
in terms... Because "asking for help" can be at the same time to express
some emotional gap of satisfaction with something, I presume... Another
problem that your post makes me wonder is about how we designate our
own emotions by language, and how can this transforms and/or constitutes
emotion itself... But now I will try only to listen to you all...
Best wishes, thanks.
