What is creativity? For that matter, what is intelligence? Where in the brain are they located? What about motivation? And the emotions? And is there a difference between emotions and feelings - or Spinoza's passions, which, I have a feeling, are similar to Damasio and Reimer's notions of feelings - "feelingful experiences." Really, the way I interpret it, emotions and the passions, or the feelings, are seen as qualitatively different, and yet overlapping. Emotions, however, are capable of being labelled - anger, joy, sorrow, fear, contentment. Feelings are harder to label - I don't know if I can even explain it. But they transcend emotions - more than just a heightened state of emotions - related, but different. Oh, my brain hurts. Ain't it grand?
And even though neuropsychologists and other scientists might be able to map and highlight where emotions "occur," where motivation "occurs," where creativity "occurs," is it that simple, or is there a larger picture to consider?
And what of the mind-body connection?
I guess the overarching question is: is it really appropriate to segregate all of these factors? It obviously makes studying and describing such aspects easier, but can we truly separate them - treat them as separate elements? Or does it ultimately all work as one?
