In this reply, I focus on the question of whether Cannon's theory was (only) a centralized version of James's. Due to space limitations, I briefly present six observations that problematize this assertion. One of my guiding principles is that theories acquire their meaning within a particular context. From this historical perspective, and in their historical contexts, the theories were quite distinct.
