The pleasure experience of low- and high anhedonic undergraduates

Douglas, Kathryn Ann January 1978 (has links)
Some emotional and descriptive aspects of an imagined pleasure experience were examined for low- and high-anhedonic undergraduates. Subjects were classified into low-anhedonic or high-anhedonic on the basis of scores on the.Physical Anhedonia Scale (Chapman, Chapman, & Raulin, 1976). Emotional responses were derived from scores on the Differential Emotions Scale (Izard, Dougherty, Bloxom, & Kotsch, 1974) and included anxiety items. A factor analysis was conducted for each of the two scales used and factor scores were computed. Because males scored as significantly more anhedonic than females, analyses were conducted separately for 49 dependent measures: recall of pleasant situations, average rating of pleasantness, frequency of pleasant experiences, individual situation ratings of pleasantness (maximum of 10), factor scores for 12 emotion factors, and factor scores for 24 anhedonia factors. The overall T2 for both males and females was highly significant, suggesting that low-anhedonics of both sexes differ from high-anhe-donics in their report's "regarding their emotional and experiential concomitants of the pleasure experience. The precise source of the difference was not, however, discernible. The factor structures of both the Differential Emotions Scale and the Physical Anhedonia Scale are discussed. Although the structure of the Differential Emotions Scale clearly replicates the work of Izard et al. (1974), that of the Physical Anhedonia Scale failed to be consistent. The weaknesses of the latter instrument are discussed with reference to factor analytic study. / Arts, Faculty of / Psychology, Department of / Graduate

Plato's method in the Philebus

Vassiliou, Anastasia January 2002 (has links)
This thesis undertakes to prove that the unity of Plato's Philebus depends on the terms in which its methodological coherence is understood. The dialogue is concerned with principles: the principles of sciences, dialectic and the good human life and how we arrive at them. These principles are studied in the respect in which they are hypothesized as or in fact are, units or ones. This aspect is studied both in its application to sciences and in the context of a new conception of dialectic that studies units as structures and not as ultimates. In sciences units as postq.lates are shown to be operative within a system of restricted scope. The method of analyzing epistemic structures in music, rhythm and language is valid only insofar as its results are acknowledged as provisional and non-ultimate. Dialectic on the other hand determines everything with regard to its specific place within the larger structure of Being. The new description of the tasks of the dialectician has its origins in the' studies of the late dialogues on the problems of the strict individuality of the Forms. It has impressive consequences, however, in the realm of ethical deliberation. Good human life is a unit that necessarily evolves as an intelligible structure but is itself derivative from the unity of Being as a whole. As a result, the self-sufficiency of a good human life is not to be judged by the criteria of any rational system, but by the standards of unity and containment that are at work in the cosmos at large. Althoq.gh this requires the attainment of a perspective that only the wise may achieve, once the principle of Goodness as a unity condition of Being is recognized for what it is and what it involves, a successful selection of the ingredients of the good human life and their appropriate ranking should follow without fail.

The modification of human pain tolerance.

Weiffenbach, James M. January 1964 (has links)
The idea that there exists a describable stimulus or class of stimuli which invariably and predictably produce pain has been challenged repeatedly. Similarly, the "traditional" notion that there is a one to one relation between tissue damage (or any other specifiable stimulus) and pain response has been vigorously opposed (Livingston, 1943, 1953; Beecher, 1959 Melzack, 1961; Melzack & Wall, 1962). However, the concept of a physically describable, and thus measurable, pain producing stimulus plays an essential role in the study of pain perception. The fact that some stimuli which often produce pain do, under specifiable conditions, fail to produce pain permits the study of conditions which alter the effectiveness of pain stimuli. [...]

'Oh My Pen Drops From Me Here' Bliss, Pleasure and Sexual Encounter in the Erotic Novel

Johnson, Justine 29 August 2011 (has links)
This thesis explores three accounts of male erotic fantasy. In my second chapter, I apply Roland Barthes’ conceptions of bliss and pleasure to John Cleland’s 18th century erotic novel, Fanny Hill, or Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure in order to test Barthes’ theory. In my third chapter, I use D. H. Lawrence’s own erotic theory to analyze his depictions of boredom, tenderness and the mind/body divide in his 20th century novel, Lady Chatterley’s Lover. In my fourth chapter, I rely on the theory of sadomasochism to explore the ways in which pleasure, pain and degradation figure in the Pauline Réage’s 20th century sadomasochistic novel, Story of O. In all three of these novels, erotic pleasure, love and transcendence are central themes and I ultimately elucidate the ways in which Cleland, Lawrence and Réage strategically use them to influence the reader’s reception of their accounts of male erotic fantasy.
