5 Freedom and Well-Being The gist of the robustly freedom-sensitive theory is that unfree episodes of intrinsic attitudinal pleasures and intrinsic displeasures are intrinsically valueless. If this robust theory is true, the intrinsic value of lives that are bereft of freedom is undermined: no agent’s life will be good in itself for that agent. With the asymmetric theory, unfree intrinsic attitudinal pleasures are less intrinsically good than free intrinsic attitudinal pleasures, but freedom does not have any impact on intrinsic displeasures; an unfree episode of displeasure is just as intrinsically bad as it would be if it were free.

We might put the point in this way: just as it is good to feel elated, so it is good to be thinly pleased at, or about, or in something. There seems to be no reason to privilege affective states in the relevant fashion but exclude cognitive states from being privileged in this same fashion. Now suppose you are thinly pleased about something. From the fact that you would not feel any different if you were not pleased about that thing, it does not follow that being thinly pleased about something is welfare-irrelevant.

Zimmerman further proposes that it is possible to feel elated or depressed without being pleased or displeased about anything (2001, p. 196; 2007, p. 427). In addition, he claims that “when it is said that there is value in pleasure or disvalue in displeasure, it is surely feeling pleased or displeased that is usually intended. It is chiefly the euphoric aspect of (thick) pleasure that makes such pleasure pleasant, and the dysphoric aspect of (thick) displeasure that makes such displeasure unpleasant.
