In addition to their theoretical ideas, in this hallmark essay the authors summarized their pathbreaking experimental stress research in which they were able to demonstrate physiological effects of manipulated appraisal. According to Lazarus emotions are "constantly in a state of flux," that is, the cognitions shaping the emotional reaction are affected by the interaction between emotion-eliciting conditions and coping processes. In his cognitive-mediational theory he outlined two major types of appraisal: (1) primary appraisal, directed at the establishment of the significance or meaning of the event to the organism, and (2) secondary appraisal, directed at the assessment of the ability of the organism to cope with the consequences of the event.

While we must give credit to Arnold for the fact that she had to work through an extraordinary paradigm change during her scientific career and at the same time had to promote her insights and findings to a critical scientific community, her diplomatic presentation of the appraisal perspective also resulted in considerable misconceptions about the new theory. Because the impression was given that the cognitive approach was only one theory among many to explain emotional experience and behavior, the true significance of the appraisal paradigm was not recognized by emotion researchers until much later.
