It does not view expressive movements as the tiny beginnings of a given form of behaviour, but as completely different actions that have their own purposes, which can be completely different from those of the behaviour they are deemed to foretell. For example, rather than seeing aggressiveness as the commencement of a fight and fear as the intimation of flight, I think they should be seen as a system of threats and offers of submission – in other words, as promises. This is why both are something like actions, and I say ‘like’ because affective actions require more than the mere expression of the emotion.

Emotions as a process of co-ordination are the means of reciprocal influence among people and this influence enables individuals to acquire some autonomy. In other words, emotions are the tie by which we separate ourselves from each other. There is no independent subject or autonomous individual before the affective process that connects us. Emotions constitute us as subjects. They are the process that makes the relation to the other prior to autonomy. That, at least, is the thesis I now want to defend.
