Affection (from Latin affectio Antun, impression) denotes an effect in philosophy , especially on feelings.
In his discussion of the peripatetic and stoic doctrine of affect , Augustine cites affectio , affectus , perturbatio and passio - the most suitable expression after him - as synonyms for the Greek πάθος (páthos) (De civitate dei IX, 4; quoted e.g. in Thomas von Aquin , Summa theologiae Ia-IIa, 22, 2). René Descartes used the term to denote the effect of objects on the senses (Les Passions de l'âme (1649) (“The Passions of the Soul”) II, I). In Immanuel Kant a similarity of givens of objects for the mind is addressed. (e.g. Immanuel Kant: AA IV, 33, or Immanuel Kant: AA VII, 268)
