Anybody seriously interested in the relation of emotion to thought
might look into the work of the cognition-affect people at the
University of Birmingham (UK). Check their various web and ftp
areas (clues below). Probably the right message to will get you announcements
like the following (which confirms my basic prejudices on the issue:
money = resource allocation = value = emotion). Another recent title that
I loved was, "Towards a Computational Libidinal Economy." --Steve

>Cognitive Science Research Report CSRP-97-6, School of Computer Science,
>University of Birmingham.
>A society of mind will require an economy of mind, that is multi-agent systems
>(MAS) that meet a requirement for the adaptive allocation and reallocation of
>scarce resources will need to use a quantitative universal representation of
>value that mirrors the flow of agent products, much as money is used in simple
>commodity economies. The money-commodity is shown to be an emergent exchange
>convention that serves both to constrain and allow the formation of
>commitments by functioning as an ability to buy processing power. MAS with
>both currency flow and minimally economic agents can adaptively allocate and
>reallocate control relations and scarce resources, in particular labour or
>processing power. The implications of these views are outlined for MAS
>research and cognitive science.
