  • Title:
    Derrida Discusses Love: Who or What?
  • Artist:
    Jacques Derrida
  • Year:
    n/a
  • Description:
    Derrida makes the distinction between the 'who' one loves - their singularity - and the 'what' - the specific qualities of the beloved; then, he states that philosophy's most basic question - 'What is Being?' promotes the same sort of differential reflection: "is Being someone or something?" Fidelity, he states, is always threatened by this division - between the desire to be faithful to the other's singularity and the qualities that may not be as one once thought.
