There is a second objection against the robust theory. The objection is that freedom has a less marked effect on intrinsic value than this theory implies. The intrinsic value of an episode of intrinsic attitudinal pleasure is enhanced if that episode is free.

If one accepts these objections, one may well be drawn to more modest versions of freedom-sensitive attitudinal hedonism.
