Entry: anhedonia (n.)

In context: "One kind is low-grade and sometimes gets called anhedonia, or simple melancholy."

Definition: From fn. 280:

"Anhedonia was apparently coined by Ribot, a Continental Frenchman, who in his 19th-century, Psychologie des Sentiments says he means it to denote the psychoequivalent of analgesia, which is the neurologic suppression of pain."
