Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Desire: desire is a linguistically formulated attitude or an attitude that can be formulated for imagined or actually given situations or objects. It may be desired to possess an object or to realize or terminate states or situations. A special case is unconscious desires, which can ultimately be identified only by attributing a linguistic form. In this way one can ascribe desires to animals.
