About this product
- DescriptionEros Revisited rethinks the desire for the other through philosophical, poetical, and psychological inquiry. Dr. Isaac B. Rosler draws from the works of Plato, Butler, and Derrida to explore the unreadability of Eros's enigma and the desire to address its mystery through assertive and ncontradictory discourse, resulting in the modern objectification of Eros into defined sexual orientations. With the rise of the concept of the Freudian ego, Eros is heterosexualized and the indeterminate love for the other falls into oblivion. In an attempt to revisit Eros as a metaphysical enigma, Dr. Rosler demonstrates the necessity of turning toward the mythical grounds of the desiring-ego and the roots of philosophical dialectic thinking. This book turns toward the withdrawing enigma of Eros toward the most radical aspect of friendship and love. Eros Revisited offers an examination of the oblivious metaphysical remains of Eros and will appeal to those interested in cultural studies and literary theory.
