While fear, anger and love can sometimes be considered points in affective life in which orders of preferences already exist and forms of behaviour are already determined, affective life itself is the process by which these preferences are established. Melancholy, happiness and anxiety are generally better seen as points at which preferences are not set and behaviour is undetermined. Being in love, as least in a certain sense, is a classical example of a relation in which the preferences of the lover vary in accordance with those of the beloved.

5 Social standing and social distance Social standing is determined from considering the individual’s position within the organisation. This is drawn from the earlier ethnographic work. On one level this was a simple case of creating a hierarchy based on job title of all the individuals in the team. However job title was not the only determinant factor. Social distance also played a quite fundamental role in how one was positioned within the discourse of the office. This could be seen quite clearly in the flow of conversation: who chatted to whom, how language (especially the use of academic and scientific discourse) clearly had the effect of demarcating academic from non academic employees.

It is made up of our decisions to dominate, flee, submit, unite with the other, make reciprocal commitments, understand each other, fight, separate, be indifferent, ally ourselves, watch, fear, challenge and comply. Social organizations offer codes and rules concerning all these decisions. They tell us who to respect, flee or pursue, when to obey and when to be tender. These codes influence the tone of our affective life, but they are never identical with it. They mould our emotions but they do not construct them any more than they can be deduced from them.
