PAULA, Yuri Amaral de  e  GOTO, Tommy Akira. Aurel Kolnai's phenomenology of disgust: contributions to the phenomenological clarification of emotions. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2017, vol.23, n.2, pp. 231-244. ISSN 1809-6867.

Historically, the phenomenological movement was marked by a great variety of investigations directed to the elucidation of affectivity and of particular affective experiences. The first phenomenologists were responsible for a wide set of analyzes on the affective experiences. Many of these analyzes have been neglected and remain little discussed. Sharing the same conceptual and methodological positioning of these authors, we have Aurel Kolnai's work on the hostile feelings written in the 1930s. Thus, we aim to reconstitute Aurel Kolnai's phenomenological analysis of disgust present in his essay entitled "Disgust" from 1929. For this, we base ourselves on the systematic methodological procedures and criteria of the bibliographic research, starting from the analysis of the same text in two different translations. With this, we present a brief summary of the biographical and intellectual trajectory of the author and the different moments and specific analyzes contained in his essay, including: the delimitation of disgust and the possible points of view of analysis, the phenomenological analysis of anxiety and disgust, the kinds of physical and moral disgustingness, their relation to the senses, to life and death. We conclude that the phenomenological description of hostile feelings has utility and relevance for the scenario of fundamental debates related to the psychological related areas.
