Appraisal 8 (3) (2011)

The article examines some aspects of Scheler’s view on affectivity, especially his hierarchical approach which is useful in solving difficulties in analysis of affectivity and helps to avoid downwards as well as upwards reductionism in considering intricacy of emotions. After presenting how Scheler delineates the four levels of feelings, critical observations are made as to points which should be developed or refined so that Scheler’s model could more broadly contribute to current debate over emotions and advancement of the theory of affectivity.
Keywords feelings, emotions, emotions,  levels of depth, vertical approach to affectivity,  hierarchical model of affectivity, stratification of affectivity
