affective mechanisms to Cellérier's analysis of the pragmatic and epistemic transformations. Tenuous as the resulting model may be, it gives a picture more complete than other models of the role that affective evaluations play in adapting action and in constructing knowledge. In a preliminary way, it also allows us to bring together empirical data on problem solving, on decision making, and on the evolution of scientific thought. Further study is needed to determine whether these promising beginnings can mature into a full-blown theory including other aspects of affectivity.
