In the analysis of the act to find the place of emotion within it, we have the work of Charles Darwin to start with. He has shown that the so-called emotions belong to a number of primitive acts. In the case of anger, however, the emotion arises when conscious direction of the activity of getting food and protection of the self or what belongs to it has ceased. The same thing is true of fear. Fear, as distinguished from a paralyzing terror, is found when an activity undirected by consciousness has effected the removal from the dangerous object. Emotion in so far as it is passionate belongs to the instinctive appropriation of the object. Interest belongs to the deliberate overcoming of the spatial, temporal, and other obstacles that lie between the individual and the object sought. The interest is much more definitely social in its organization than is the emotion.
