    Abstract

    In earlier work I have claimed that emotion and some emotions are not �natural kinds�. Here I clarify what I mean by �natural kind�, suggest a new and more accurate term and discuss the objection that emotion and emotions are not descriptive categories at all, but fundamentally normative categories.
