4.0 / 5.0

Amorous Acts illustrates the value of psychoanalytic theory for comprehending relationships, experiences, art, politics, and all sorts of human interactions. More specifically, it employs psychoanalysis to show how queer theory is operating to effect a nonhetero-sexist social order. Although the Lacanian subject in Love can only experience his/her self-shattering, Lacan's conception of Love is seen here as politically useful. This study breaks down Lacanian Love into three different forms and tries to unveil the danger, as well as the cultural potential, of the most intense of these variations.
