Hedonic Tone[edit]

There really needs to be an article on Hedonic tone. It fits in with Behavioral Economics. And the Daniel Kahneman article needs expanding. DCDuring 22:37, 9 September 2007 (UTC)


This article seems to overlap pretty heavily with the Valence effect article. I think it makes sense to merge them, but don't know the Wikipedia process for making that a "formal" suggestion. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Emergentchaos (talkcontribs) 23:44, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Page name not great[edit]

The lack of the word "emotion" in the page title is not helpful for people who don't already know what this is about. "Valence" is a terribly abstract word that could apply to just about anything.

Are either of these better?

  • emotional valence (psychology)
  • valence (psychology of emotion)

Unfortunately, this is not obvious. — MaxEnt 23:58, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

Lacanian valence[edit]

We should add a few lines about Lacanian valence informed by jouissance. If anyone is able to find reliable sources about this, please ping me.Zigzig20s (talk) 21:20, 15 October 2016 (UTC)
