Improvement of Traceability of Widely-Defined Measurements in the Field of Humanities

In the last decades, a tendency to extend the domain of "fuzzy" measurements of multiparametric quantities to the field of humanities has been observed. In the measurement process, the "fuzzy" measurements should meet the requirements of metrological traceability. The paper deals with the approach proposed for developing a measurement model of "fuzzy" measurements. The approach suggested is illustrated by an example of a model for measuring the emotions contained in musical fragments. The model is based on the hypothesis that permits to explain the origination of emotions in the evolution process.
