Abstract: Emotion's contributions to our mental lives are many and complicated.  Philosophy progresses when it enlarges the realm of emotional phenomena that it recognizes and integrates within plausible theoretical models of mental functioning.  This paper will discuss one phenomenon, counter-cognitive emotions, that has been noted but has evaded satisfactory explanation, and another, shallow cognizing, that has escaped notice in contemporary moral psychology.  I will propose that both phenomena be understood as products of a non-integrated mental architecture.
