If you have a question about this talk, please contact Yasmin Fouani-Eckstein.

This talk will reflect on some lessons learnt from working with Kent Berridge on addiction and the wanting/liking distinction. In particular I will be talking about the signficance of wanting; the distinction between its presentation as a dispositional and as an occurrent state; the role of higher order desires; the role of self-control; and the possible role of pleasure. It will be a little short on firm conclusions, except those concerning how much remains unclear.

This talk is part of the Zangwill Club series.
