La disposizione dell’amicizia e la possessione dell’amore by Umberto Galimberti

By Umberto Galimberti

Platone ha inventato un grande rimedio in keeping with l. a. follia: los angeles ragione! In questo breve, denso e illuminante saggio, Umberto Galimberti muove dai Greci in keeping with giungere fino a noi e alla relazione che ci costituisce. Il Simposio, il più bel testo che mai sia stato scritto sull'amore, ci guida ancora a scoprire los angeles mediazione che l'amore realizza tra l. a. follia e l. a. ragione. È attraverso l'amore che entriamo in contatto con l. a. nostra follia: ci innamoriamo, infatti, proprio di chi è riuscito a intercettarla e a presentarla a noi stessi. A differenza dell'amicizia, l'amore crea una situazione di possessione, che non siamo capaci di governare e in cui a parlare è il corpo, non più il linguaggio della ragione.
