Pleasure and Desire: The Case of Hedonism Reviewed

J. C. B. Gosling


This book discusses and attempts to clarify the central terms that form the backbone of any hedonist position, with the purpose of seeing why such views are so persistently attractive. It avoids the exposition of individual authors, and tries to produce arguments that tell against all positions of various types. Each chapter has its own bibliography, which is composed of works that are fairly easily available in English.

Keywords: terms, hedonist, arguments, positions, views, individual authors
