 Emotion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Emotion is differentiated from feeling, in that, as noted, emotion is a psycho-physiological state that moves an organism to action.
Feeling can be seen as emotion that is filtered through the cognitive brain centers, specifically the frontal lobe, producing a physiological change in addition to the psycho-physiological change.
Emotions are mammalian elaborations of vertebrate arousal patterns, in which neurochemicals (e.g., dopamine, noradrenaline, and serotonin) step-up or step-down the brain's activity level, as visible in body movements, gestures, and postures.

I feel that a mind which is not capable of seeing and feeling totally the beauty of the earth, the sky, the palm tree, the horizon, the beauty of a line, - a face, a gesture, will never comprehend that extraordinary thing which is beauty and freedom.

 Whitehead on the Metaphysical Employment of Language
However, it is all-important to him that philosophical abstractions be rooted firmly in the concrete, that the terms of his system sustain a dialectic in which the particular is given significance by reference to general concepts, and the general is given substance by the particular exemplifying it.
Whitehead feels compelled to reject the traditional distinction between ‘universal’ and ‘particular’ because he is convinced that such a distinction creates insurmountable problems for epistemology.

 The 5 Levels of the Feeling Function: a Phenomenological Description
Feelings are experienced in forms that are comparatively exaggerated, feeling is conceived of as 'emotionality' and 'sentimentality' (Von Franz).
Feeling begins to be perceived as an everpresent field, constantly shifting in character and tone, a backdrop against which objects of our attention are selectively relevated (Evans/Fudjack).
The ACTIVE interpenetration of the individual feeling fields, which we experience at this level, is very different from what has been called 'participation mystique' (which occurs when an individual becomes entrained to a group and loses individual identity, thereby becoming vulnerable to the influence and indirect suggestions of the group).

 Feeling
Feelings are most generally information that biological beings are capable of sensing in the situations they are in, exposed to or depending on.
These innate capabilities to feel attraction or repulsion is the foundation for morality - in other words, feelings well understood form the inner capability we are born with to arrive at what is good/bad and right/wrong.
This view contrasts sharply to extreme religious and extreme political teachings that always want to lay claim to what is moral - that humans are born in a moral vacuum and that it is only authority that can tell human beings what is right and wrong.

 FT November 2002: Feeling Moral   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
While the morality of pleasant feelings ends with the likes of Peter Singer, who thinks little humans may be killed because their pleasures aren’t big enough, the morality of higher feelings ends with the likes of Hannibal Lecter, who thinks vulgar humans may be killed because their pleasures aren’t refined enough.
Of all the varieties of the morality of feelings, the only one that does make much use of the language of laws is Determinism, and it speaks not of moral laws, but of biological ones.
Although our feelings are a part of our inbuilt design, what the moralities of feelings try to do is make sense of them in terms that are alien to design—in terms that diminish, or dilute, or deny our dependence on the One who inbuilt and understands it.
