This chapter begins with a discussion of the theoretical underpinnings of the study. It considers how best to come to grips with the problem of affect, and turns in other directions to see what can be learned from the psychologists and psychoanalysts. The book then discusses how to study affect in the field, setting out some of the questions, empirical and methodological, that are generated by the theoretical perspective adopted, and the kinds of data they lead one to seek.

Keywords:   affect, psychology, psychoanalysis, study methodology
