Saw this quote at Judith Butler | Facebook:

“Love is not a state, a feeling, a disposition, but an exchange, uneven, fraught with history, with ghosts, with longings that are more or less legible to those who try to see one another with their own faulty vision.”

As with the Hannah Arendt video this is very technical stuff, but well worth listening to, if one wants to learn about higher thinking.

I first learned of Judith Butler many years ago at butterfliesandwheels.org.
