What happens if Eros intrudes into the master-slave dialectic? Aiming to partially de-Hegelianize the master-slave dialectic and showing its sinister perpetuation in the democratic socius- not as a phase of a progressive dialectic, but as a frozen paradigm of social (especially inter-male) interactions- this book poises Eros at the threshold of ratiocination and imagination, arguing against the exclusion of Eros from the domain of political economy and imaginatively envisaging an erotic collectivity. Such a collectivity would, the author argues, establish palpable erotic reciprocity between its members, thereby doing away with the unequal recognition that is the kernel of the master-slave dialectic. Setting its critique of theoretical closures in praxis, this book looks forward to an erotic future that can''t be captured in any philosophical systems. Intellectually stimulating and occasionally deliberately provocative, this work would proffer its readers a pure intellectual bliss- that of mulling over things de novo from an “erotic” perspective. This book is the vehicle for the readers'' as well as the author''s journey towards Aphrodite.
