The article attempts to define and place the feelings module in the typology of quality of life (QoL). In the introductory part of the work, the universal essence of the concept of “quality of life” was defined, and then two groups of criteria and classification of QoL were distinguished – with exposed and latent axiology. This made it possible to show the kind of “losing” the feelings module of the vision of an “artificial” man (egocentric), so characteristic of the current civilization, and at the same time the possibility of finding this module of the vision of a “real” man (with revealed humanity). This search and finding of the feelings module would not be possible without a clear distinction between two fundamental concepts: feelings and emotions. The recognition of QoL feelings module made in this article may, but does not have to, initiate a series of works devoted to the most important components of this module in the journal “Problems of Quality”.
