Thought and feeling - You can t have one without the other

In her 2000 Presidential Address Pat Frankish reflected on the need for a ‘hearts and minds’ approach to change.
Thought and feeling — it seems the link between the two has been the focus of all my work as a psychologist, and of considerable interest to researchers in our premier establishments. But why did I choose it for my address? I feel that we can use the relationship between thoughts and feelings to mirror developments not only in The British Psychological Society, but also in society in general. I hope to draw together various threads into a tapestry that is rich in meaning, leaving you with some thoughts and feelings that represent a tiny shift in the way you see the world.
