An emotion is a mental and physiological state associated with a wide variety of feelings, thoughts, and behaviours. It is a prime determinant of the sense of subjective well-being and appears to play a central role in many human activities. As a result of this generality, the subject has been explored in many, if not all of the human sciences and art forms. There is much controversy concerning how emotions are defined and classified.

Researchers distinguish feeling and emotion, where feeling refers to the subjective experience of the emotion. A related distinction is between the emotion and the results of the emotion, principally behaviours and emotional expressions. There has been considerable debate concerning how emotions should be classified. Some psychologists divide emotions into basic and complex categories, where some emotions are considered foundational to the existence of others. Another important means of distinguishing emotions concerns their occurrence in time. Some emotions occur over a period of seconds (e.g. surprise) where others can last years (e.g. love).
