Can Philosophy Love?: Reflections and Encounters


Add your own review!

Overview

How can we articulate a philosophy of love? This volume stages encounters between contemporary understandings of love and philosophy. It considers particular continental philosophers who think about love and its relation to desire and sexuality. The essays in this collection contend with psychoanalysis as a line of thought that exposes love's role in all knowledge. Drawing on the work of key thinkers such as Zizek, Badiou, Lacan, Hegel, Kierkegaard and Marx, this book puts love to work as a way of understanding the subject of desire as a figure of knowledge shaped by the event of love.
