Reason vs Emotion two systems at war how to navigate our own brains

Emotions are biological states associated with the nervous system brought on by neurophysiological changes variously associated with thoughts, feelings, behavioural responses, and a degree of pleasure or displeasure. There is currently no scientific consensus on a definition. Emotions are often intertwined with mood, temperament, personality, disposition, creativity, and motivation.

In the most general terms, a reason is a consideration which justifies or explains an action, a belief, an attitude, or a fact.[1]

Reasons are what people appeal to when making arguments about what people should do or believe. (Those are reasons in the normative sense.) For example, that a doctor’s patient is grimacing is a reason to believe the patient is in pain. That the patient is in pain is a reason for the doctor to do things to alleviate the pain.

In another sense of the term, reasons are explanations of why things happened. (These are reasons in the explanatory sense.) For example, the reason the patient is in pain is that her nerves are sending signals from her tissues to her brain.

A reason, in many cases, is brought up by the question “why?”, and answered following the word because. Additionally, words and phrases such as sincedue toasconsidering (that), a result (of), and in order to, for example, all serve as explanatory locutions that precede the reason to which they refer.
