Abstract
[This is the penultimate version, please send me an email for the final version]. Some sensations are pleasant, some unpleasant, and some are neither. Furthermore, those that are pleasant or unpleasant are so to different degrees. In this essay, I want to explore what kind of a difference is the difference between these three kinds of sensations. I will develop a comprehensive three-level account of sensory pleasure that is simultaneously adverbialist, functionalist and is also a version of a satisfied experiential-desire account.
Keywords pleasure  sensory affect  sensation and affect  adverbialism  functionalism  affective phenomenology  heterogeneity  experiential desire  motivation  desire
