This chapter examines the architectural basis of affective states and processes in robots. It shows how ‘architecture-based’ concepts can extend and refine folk-psychology concepts in ways that make them more useful both for expressing scientific questions and theories, and for specifying engineering objectives. It recommends the CogAff schema as a generic framework that distinguishes the types of components there may be in an architecture, operating concurrently with different functional roles.

Keywords: affective states; affective processes; robots; CogAff schema
