GONZALEZ, Sebastián. From pornography to seduction: between pleasure, desire and will. arete [online]. 2008, vol.20, n.1, pp.39-74. ISSN 1016-913X.

This article is, fundamentally, about the concepts of desire, pleasure, will, eroticism and seduction. From the beginning, pornography is shown to think about these concepts, taking account that it is to establish their relations, as well as their more radical differences. Our hypothesis is that desire has nothing to do with the satisfaction of demands. Desire is an affection through which the will is related to the objects of its interest ties and not a feeling produced by its particular characteristics. It is in that sense that the other concepts are relevant. The concept of desire can be characterized when considering the inner experience of the eroticism, like the symbolic interchange of seduction. The text is divided in four parts. The first is about the concepts of will, desire and law. The second part has to do with the idea that desire always relates to erotica ambiguity always present in the will. In the third part I clarify the concepts of desire, eroticism and will upon the experience of Kierkegaard´s seducer. Finally, I return to the subject of pornography to remark the difference between pleasure and desire.

Palabras clave : desire; pleasure; will; seduction; eroticism and pornography.
