User Discussion


"The inclusion of this term concerns me for two reasons. First, because it attempts to capture two definitions that are really completely different: one associatied with 'stimuli' and the other with 'emotion'. Recifying this probably requires some kind of 'disambiguation' to be built in to the Atlas, similar to that used by eg. Wikipedia. Second, because it is difficult to discern whether a term such as this is really a property of the 'world' or a property of 'cognition'. While obviously a grey area, I feel that its inclusion opens the door to concepts that may be somewhat beyond the scope of this Atlas. Perhaps what is required is that the 'Concepts' category should be further subdivided or concepts somehow rated based on whether or not they are more closely subjective or objective? "
