After all, aren’t the French also famed as some of the world’s greatest lovers after the Spaniards, Italians, and Brazilians, maybe? Don’t all those add to Monsieur Badiou’s credibility as an authority on love? In any case, I had to read this profound little book, dense with meaning and implications in its 90 pages.
The title was borrowed from a movie released in by famous French director Jean-Luc Godard in which Badiou did a turn that might have been cut out of the final film. I have read the book twice, but still have not fully grasped all that it’s trying to say. Maybe, the vagaries of love are too complex to contain in any one book.
Or, maybe, it’s just the way of the philosopher to sound deep and abstruse. But I am with Monsieur Badiou. I believe in love and agree with his thinking on it. Love is at the heart of the books I write–as one of the themes and as a necessity for the work that goes into creating books.
We are all, in our idiosyncratic ways, preoccupied with love issues–either as firm believers or as skeptics for whom love is, at best, an illusion that doesn’t last. Or, worst, as atheists for whom love is merely a veneer for sexual desire and who, therefore, assume that it must not exist Badiou explains another take on this POV.
Badiou says love is not for everybody. I think that’s partly because his definition of love transcends those magical early encounters the romance. A romantic relationship is not love unless it lasts across time; that is, it must endure, outlast that early glow. Endurance takes love to a plane higher than that of romance.
In a nutshell, Badiou believes love needs: As far as I can tell, in love, “truth” is constructed from answers to: What is the world like when it is experienced, developed and lived from the point of view of difference which I interpret as my view as opposed to yours and not identity?
He decries internet dating as safe love and reminds us that love sees the difference in people and embraces them. With love seemingly lost in our world, reading this book is a worthwhile reminder that we must will ourselves to love. Gorgeous glorious thoughtful- what we need to think about in a world of anxiety and antagonism – so uplifting. The links to Communism were a bit unexpected but the rationale given makes a rough sort of sense albeit one that sits uneasily in my mind next to this particular political atrocity.
One person found this helpful. We must re-invent love is Badiou’s message.
How do we do that? He tries to suggest ways of thinking about it.
