On Rational Madness: Love and Reason in Socrates and Lacan (Winner of the Taylor & Francis ICA Philosophy of Communication Division Best Paper Award 2008)
Abstract:Drawing on a close reading of Lacan's Seminar XX: Encore, regarding the idea of love's centrality in every human intersubjective experience, this article explores the artificially constructed division between Eros and Logos that since the Enlightenment pervades most of the cultural renditions of western images of love, and argues that this separation forecloses an overarching unity, put forth by Lacan trough the concept Y a l'Un (there is One).
