The Pain and Pleasure of Being Human Parshas Tazria Metzorah. No being can accompany G-d, nor does G-d need the company of another. However, to be human is to be dependent upon other people (Brochos 5b), and there is no better way to be reminded of this than to be put into solitary confinement.

But to understand human motivation, it is necessary to go beyond pleasure and pain. What people want is to be effective in their life pursuits, and there are three distinct ways that people want to be effective. They want to be effective in having desired results (value), which includes having pleasure but is not limited to pleasure.
The Pleasure Trap is a system of forces, that due to the existence of the motivational triangle, can be vey difficult to escape from. Humans are designed to avoid pain, in this case the physical pain of hunger, and the psychological pain of being ‘different’. We are drawn to the path of least resistance, such as ‘convenience’ foods.

The Pleasure of Pain Find out why one in 10of us is into S&M. By Marianne Apostolides, published September 1, - last reviewed on June 9, The underlying motive of the unfashioned narrative of pleasure and pain in Aristotle’s Ethics is to tell us how we should act to exhibit virtue.
BY HEIGRUJAM PREMKUMAR According to Aristotle, ‘the pleasure or pain that accompanies people’s acts should be taken as a sign of their character’, ‘because the person who abstains from bodily pleasures.
Pleasure is a broad class of mental states that humans and other conscious animals experience as positive, enjoyable, or worth seeking. It includes more specific mental states such as happiness, entertainment, enjoyment, ecstasy and early psychological concept of pleasure, the pleasure principle, describes it as a positive feedback mechanism that motivates.
Our preferences, which drive evolution, register a search for pleasure, which, as Paul Bloom says in his book How Pleasure Works, “[motivates] certain behavior that is good for the genes.” Now the pleasure centers in mammalian brains might be largely similar across the species, but the extraordinary flexibility of human intelligence.
The book Pain, Pleasure, and the Greater Good: "In this powerful, intelligent, and often disturbing book, Cathy Gere shows clearly how nineteenth-century models of human nature nourished terrifying medical crimes during the twentieth century. The history laid out here shows how the utilitarian tradition set up a stern calculus of maximizing.
The study of pleasure and pain belongs to the political philosopher, for the political philosopher directs the end of man. Some think that no pleasure is good, others think that most pleasures are bad, and others think that even if all pleasures are good the highest good cannot be pleasure. Book 2, Chapter 5.
Aristotle further examines what virtue is. He says there are “three conditions arising in the soul”—feelings, capacities, and states —and that virtue must be one of these.
Feelings are things that have elements of both pleasure and. Unlike pleasure, with the growing understanding and research into human physiology, pain has become more than just a subjective hedonistic feeling, with the biological mechanisms of pain being explored and of great academic concern beyond the realm of psychology.
Socrates argues that the pleasure of the philosopher is the only real pleasure. All other pleasures are actually relief from pain, not positive pleasure. Other pleasures are not real pleasures because other desires can never be completely satisfied.
All we do is quench those yearnings tem-porarily, easing the pain of wanting. I think caring about who the artist is and how the painting was created and where it came from is just part and parcel of what it is to be a human being who is reacting to art.

However, their pleasure is of a higher character than that of an animal or a base human. Mill writes, "It is better to be a human being dissatisfied than a pig satisfied; better to be Socrates dissatisfied than a fool satisfied.
And if the fool, or the pig, are of a different opinions, it is because they only know their side of the question.".Avoiding pain and pursuing pleasure are two sides of the same coin.

"Being hungry" is a pain, but "eating nourishing food" is a pleasure. And the way to keep hunger away is to eat.the ways in which pleasure and pain figure in the psychology of human action.
