The problems of determining affect lead to errors in the qualification of crimes. The solution of the research tasks predetermined the complex of research methods and the essence of the phenomenon under study. Such a set of methods includes the dialectical method of cognition, the method of analysis and synthesis, a systematic approach that contribute to a comprehensive and substantive study of the issues raised.
