The papers in this volume of Consciousness & Emotion Book Series are organized around the theme of "enaction." Enactive emotional processes are not merely the recipients of information or the passive victims of input and learning. The organism first is engaged in an ongoing, complex pattern of self-organizational activity, for the purpose of maintaining a dynamical continuity of pattern across changes of subserving micro-constituents and environmental conditions, making use of multiple shunt mechanisms, feedback loops, and other complex dynamical features. Self-organizational structure is used to distinguish between action and mere reaction. Accordingly, the papers of this volume by leading students of emotion such as Jaak Panksepp, Luc Ciompi, Thomas Natsoulas, Farzaneh Pahlavan, Michela Balconi, Todd Lubart, Louise Sundararajan, Jordan Petersen and others address three main issues:

I. Emotional influences on perception and thought

II. Agency and choice

III. Agency and moral value

“Overall, this is an interesting book, and for the reader who sufficiently devotes him or herself to the wealth of information and data presented, there is much to be learned about nature of contemporary accounts of conscious choice and agency.”
“In terms of where this all fits in the marketplace, however, the new book series is reminiscent of an age-independent 'Advances in Child Development and Behavior' (integrative), but situated thematically between the 'Journal of Consciousness Studies' (theoretical) and 'Consciousness and Cognition' (empirical). Given the fast amount of these kinds of work needed to adequately address the question of 'what it is like to be a human', the series is likely to be welcomed by everyone interested in the topic.”
