About the author:Tamara F. Gusakova,
Abstract:The aim of the represented work is to explicit the differences between two close in meaning but nonidentity concepts of “pleasure” and “delight”. The adequate description of the culture is not feasible without analyzing the content of these concepts. The problem of pleasure/delight is topical in existential perspective as well. Available historical and cultural conceptions of these phenomena, methods of their reflection are analyzed in the article. Having realized that the study object is a rather “subtle matter”, the author still makes attempts to penetrate in the essence of the phenomena under consideration.
