Lust

The Cambridge Philosophy Don, Simon Blackburn, points to the work of David Hume, who saw lust not only as a sensual delight but also as a joy of the mind.


‘Broadminded though we take ourselves to be, lust gets a bad press. It lives on the wrong side of the tracks, lumbers around elbowing its way into too much ofour lives,and blushes when it comes into company’.The Cambridge Philosophy Don points to the work of David Hume, who saw lust not only as a sensual delight but also as a joy of the mind.‘Be proud ofyour lust,says the professor ofpleasure.’(Daily Mail)
