Tomkins' theories applied to various aspects of life and work

Videos of Babies and Affects

Youtube videos are precious for more than just kittens and cuteness. These videos, fun and funny as they are to watch, are excellent examples of affects in action. Of particular note is the video on shame, an affect that is notoriously hard to spot because it hides. In watching these you will see that there is a looseness in the way that folks generally talk about the emotions of their babies. But if you are a student of Tomkins, you will see vivid examples of the innate affects as described by Tomkins.
