Host of the Utilitarian Podcast.
Glad you found it useful Peter
I’ve been very influenced by Hewitt’s meta-ethics myself, and I highly recommend reading her PhD. You can also get it in book form here: https://www.amazon.com/Feeling-Value-Grounded-Phenomenal-Consciousness/dp/1534768017/
Glad you liked the episode :) I had limited time with Kent, so I didn’t get to ask him everything I wanted to ask. I hope to have more pleasure/pain scientists on in the future, maybe from the same lab.
Thank you, glad you’re enjoying the podcast :)

I don’t know whether QRI could test that hypothesis in such a setup. Based on what I know, they’re going to test the Symmetry Theory of Valence more directly.
