For many, the word pleasure conjures associations with hedonism, indulgence, and escape from the life of the mind However little we talk about it, though, there is pleasure also plays an integral role in cognitive life, in both our sensory perception of the world and our intellectual understanding This previously important but now neglected philosophical understandingFor many, the word pleasure conjures associations with hedonism, indulgence, and escape from the life of the mind However little we talk about it, though, there is pleasure also plays an integral role in cognitive life, in both our sensory perception of the world and our intellectual understanding This previously important but now neglected philosophical understanding of pleasure is the focus of the essays in this volume, which challenges received views that pleasure is principally motivating of action, unanalyzable, and caused, rather than responsive to reason Like other books in the Oxford Philosophical Concepts series, it traces the development of the focal idea from ancient times through the 20th century The essays highlight points of departure for new lines of inquiry rather than attempting to provide a full picture of how the idea of pleasure has been explored in philosophy.The volume begins by showing how Plato, Aristotle, early Islamic philosophers, and philosophers in the Medieval Latin tradition, such as Aquinas, honed in on the challenge of unifying the variety of pleasures so that they fall under one concept In the early modern period, philosophers shifted from understanding the logic of pleasure to treating pleasure as a mental state As the studies of Malebranche, Berkeley and Kant show, the central problem becomes understanding the relation of pleasure to other sensory experiences, and the role of pleasure in human cognition and knowledge Short interdisciplinary reflections interspersed between essays focus on art of 16th and 17th century textbooks and the difficult music of composers like Bach, which demonstrate translation of these concerns to cultural production in the period As the essay on Mill shows, the 19th century development of scientific psychology narrowed the definition of pleasure, and so its philosophical focus Contemporary accounts of pleasure, however, in both philosophy and psychology, are now recognizing the limitations of this narrow focus, and are once again recognizing the complexity of pleasure and its role in human life.
