Up until very recently, collective intentionality analysis has almost exclusively been concerned with shared intentions and — more recently — with shared beliefs. Next to no effort, however, has been devoted to the analysis of collective affective intentionality so far. This apparent research lacuna seems all the more surprising because the analysis of emotions has been among the key topics of international philosophical research for the last 20 years, at least, with a plethora of conferences, monographs and collected volumes on the topic. Thus the question is: why is the emotional dimension so conspicuously absent from collective intentionality?
