Many people believe that emotions are required for intelligence. I argue that this is mostly based on (a) wishful thinking and (b) a failure adequately to analyse the variety of types of affective states and processes that can arise in different sorts of architectures produced by biological evolution or required for artificial systems. This work is a development of ideas presented by Herbert Simon in the 1960s in his 'Motivational and emotional controls of cognition'.
