This chapter introduces some of the main topics in the book and argues that defining emotion and cognition may be counterproductive. It is also argued that it may be time to stop describing concepts in terms of dichotomies and to adopt a vocabulary that views concepts as complementary pairs that mutually define each other and, critically, do not exclude each other.

Keywords:   emotion, cognition
