Ramirez, J. Martin and Cabanac, Michel (2003) Pleasure, the common currency of emotions. In Emotions Inside Out: 130 Years after Darwin’s The Expression of the Emotions in man and Animals. Annals New York Academy of Sciences (1000). New York Academy of Sciences, New York, pp. 293-295.
Pleasure/displeasure is the common currency for accessing behavior in response to the various emotions; no emotion is hedonically indifferent. The hedonic dimension is what pathognomonically defines emotion. Pleasure thus makes emotion a motivating experience.
