Unlike pleasure obtained from sex and food, the battle broke out in discussion that art pleasure is special

byRaffaele Franco

By social media, pornography, sugar etc., people are transformed into "pleasure addicts with no thought" that let go of free will in order to obtain "next dopamine", art is necessary to solve the problem There is a paper on the University of London ·Warburg InstituteIt was announced by Mr. Julia · F · Christensen, a neurologist belonging to the group. This paper breaks out a neurologist's battle "Whether pleasure by art is a distinction from other pleasures" or not.

Why Scientists Are Battling Over Pleasure - The New York Times

The beginning of this was the following paper published in 2017.

Pleasure junkies all around! Why it matters and why 'the arts' might be the answer: a biopsychological perspective

Mr. Christensen shows the "art" as a solution method to pleasure addicts. Mr. Christensen says art can overwrite the adverse effects of dysfunction impulses.

Mr. Christensen's article will buy antipathy of many scientists who study about pleasure. In March 2018NeuroanencePsychologist Marcus Nadar studying psychologist and Martin Scob of neurologist "The idea that the impact of art on the brain is special has been held for so long, now is the time to kill this idea "It should be rejected."

The pleasure of art as a matter of fact

Mr. Nadar in the paper said, "Mr. Christensen claimed that the pleasure of art is different from the pleasure of food, sex, exercise, drug, but her assertion is that" pleasure by art is " It is made from a lot of evidence showing that there is no difference from the pleasure brought about by sex and drug. "

Following the dissertation of the two researchers, this time, Mr. Kristensen's advocate researcher commented. Mr. Anjan Chattagy, a neurologist at the University of Pennsylvania and Medical School, posted the content to Twitter saying "Do you think the art's pleasure is the same as the sugar on the tongue?" Mr. Chattery said in the past "The Aesthetic Brain: How we Evolved to Desire Beauty and Enjoy Art by Anjan Chatterjee(Aesthetic brain: how we evolved to wish for pleasures of art and beauty) ", the" pleasure of art is special "faction.

People who are discussing about the neurological meaning of art can be roughly divided into the following three groups.

1. A group that the experience of art is neurobiologically similar to the experience obtained from sugar and sex
2. Creating art works and appreciating art is a group that thinks to give unique and neurobiological remuneration to people
3. "I do not know such a thing" Group thinking that "such a thing is OK"

On the other hand, there seems to be agreement on the following points in both "special art school" and "not specialist group".

·Just like wine, The pleasure of art is affected by factors such as "price" and "author's reputation".
· Definition of art is difficult, and although it is possible, the definition extends to a wide range.
· Depending on the culture, how to feel "beautiful" to art is not as consistent as architecture, landscape and face. Aesthetic sense to the face is most consistent.

Mr. Nadar, belonging to group 1, "It is thought that only one human being has a system that evaluates experience as" how pleasant "and" how uncomfortable "" This is the nerve of the past 15 years It is one of the most important discoveries in science. " On the other hand, "It is foolish to argue from the viewpoint that the nervous system is shared" "All the actions such as" watching drama "and" parallel parking "are done by the brain, but these actions are all the same There is also a researcher who refutes that it has no meaning. "

Mr. Christensen does not object to the claim that "all pleasures are handled by a single compensation system", but the artistic activities have activated the nervous system related to memory processing, self-consciousness, thought, others It is suggesting the possibility that pleasures different from those of the ones are added. Such "advanced pleasure" is a part requiring further scientific research, but considering that all pleasures are the same because there is only one compensation system, "Why is there a joy that can not be achieved without realization?" "Why food Or art can not get orgasm "question remains.

According to Debra Hervenick, a representative of the Sexual Health Promotion Center at the University of Indiana at Bloomington, there are cases of orgasm formation, such as eating ripe tomatoes and reading non-erotic sentences. But why these happen is not scientifically clear, and what you can say is that it is surprisingly many that it is not scientifically understood about pleasure, Mr. Harveyik said.
