This article aims at making a conceptual analysis of the links between social policies, emotions and World Images. It tries to frame the theoretical and epistemic plots of subjacent assumptions that involve (and activate) State interventions on "the social". The following is the argumentative strategy that has been chosen: firstly, we will account for the links between social policies and the capitalist regime of accumulation; secondly, we will explain the proposed theoretical links between World Image and policies of emotions; thirdly, we will offer some arguments which show the analytical richness of linking social policies and policies of emotions through the concept of World Image; fourthly, as an example, we will frame the massiveness of social policies as a World Image that transmits emotionalities linked to the reproduction of the regime of accumulation. Lastly, as a conclusion, we ask and warn about some components of social policies which make them stand as tools for coloniality.
