In psychiatry we still think of psychopathology in terms of the three broad Aristotelian faculties of Cognition, Affection and Conation (the last two sometimes combined into Orexis), which can be roughly interpreted as Thought, Feeling and Will. Despite the efforts of modern psychology, it is very difficult to get away from this old classification which comes back in subtle disguises, however much it is formally discarded. Disorders of cognition may be classified into those pertaining to Perception, Thought and Memory.
