The authoress discusses our contemporary revival of interest in the title issue, in association with transformations within humanities, which perceive a dimension of involvement in both the activity of those being studied and the research actions taken. While discussing involvement, its emotional and axiotic contexts should not be neglected. The European philosophical tradition, especially, the British thought of 17th and 18th centuries, has tended to combine the issue of feelings with axiology. In the field of phenomenology, Max Scheler directly combined feelings with axiological issues in his non-formalist ethics and phenomenology of feelings project. As for cultural anthropology, Clifford Geertz's project called 'interpretative anthropology' has been treated as legitimised anthropology of experiencing things. Opposing an intra-psychical 'localisation' of feelings, this scholar was of opinion that the thesis claiming their cultural constitution had been relatively well proved in the context of cultural anthropology, albeit feelings are one of the most indefinable and heterogeneous aspects of our life.
