What exactly is the difference between affect and feeling?
Affect seems to refer to conscious experience:
Affect is the experience of feeling or emotion.
And confusingly, so does feeling:
In psychology, the word is usually reserved for the conscious subjective experience of emotion.
I realize that the definitions of emotion and mood are dicey as there are several different approaches (with corresponding definitions) in common use today. But is it the same for affect and feeling? Are there accepted definitions, or even accepted parts of definitions? Or do definitions depend on the emotion model?
