PSYC 5315 - Pleasure

This seminar explores the nature of pleasure. It is divided into three parts. The first deals with pleasures of the body, such as tonic (sustained) pleasures and relief pleasures. The second deals with the pleasurability of episodes and their relation to the pervasive human propensity to create narratives. The third deals with the context within which episodes emerge and analyses the stricture of lives.
