The second volume of Annals of Cultural Psychology, is dedicated to the ways in which psychology could theorize the affective nature of human social relationships with the environment. To emphasize the affective and actions-based nature of that process we have created a term (affectivating = affect + activating) which here is a neologism. It indicates the two-sided (Person => Environment and Environment => Person) process of relating—treating that relating as primarily an affective (and secondarily cognitive) process. Briefly—We affectivate environments that, in that process, turn us affectively tuned to them. This process entails a whole range of acts by a person—from body decorations to clothing to creating the “feeling of home” in one’s house or temporary place of being.

Abstract

The second volume of Annals of Cultural Psychology, is dedicated to the ways in which psychology could theorize the affective nature of human social relationships with the environment. To emphasize the affective and actions-based nature of that process we have created a term (affectivating = affect + activating) which here is a neologism. It indicates the two-sided (Person => Environment and Environment => Person) process of relating—treating that relating as primarily an affective (and secondarily cognitive) process. Briefly—We affectivate environments that, in that process, turn us affectively tuned to them. This process entails a whole range of acts by a person—from body decorations to clothing to creating the “feeling of home” in one’s house or temporary place of being.
