Several important conclusions follow from the assumptions, supported by the theory and evidence presented, that the fundamental emotions are a innate, universal phenomena, and b the components of mans principal motivation system. The conclusions support an expanded definition of the subjective culture or phenomenal field, particularly with respect to its determinants. It has been proposed that the subjective culture is determined by innate and socio-cultural factors and by unique person-environment interactions. Since the emotions are considered to be mans principal motivation system and to be motivating, cue-producing experiences, they are viewed as the most fundamental and culture-common aspects of subjective culture and phenomenal field.
