Lust

It lives on the wrong side of the tracks, lumbers around elbowing its way into too much of our 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 of your lust, says the professor of pleasure.'
