In the last fifteen years, both Anglo and Spanish-speaking context, interest in the thought of Raymond Williams (1921-1988) has re-emerged, being materialized in the reissue of his main theoretical texts -in the Spanish-speaking context some of them have been published for the first time- and even some of his novels. The purpose of this article is to pursue and to expose the historical development of one of the capital concepts in Williams's work: "Structures of feeling". Concept that since its initial formulation was understood as an exploration of the areas excluded by the rationalist paradigm - fundamentally the former and the formative processes and the instances of emotional and experiential perceptions-, which has dominates, in both aesthetics and cultural theory, a series of concepts that operate as formed totalities or "fixed forms", according to Williams.
