The Question Of Love
In a world rife with consumerism, where online dating promises risk-free romance and love is all too often seen only as a variant of desire and hedonism, the renown philosopher Alain Badiou believes that love urgently needs reinventing and defending.
In this film Mr Badiou proposes a vision of love as an adventure and an opportunity for re-invention of the individual. Moving, zealous, and wise, it urges us not to fear love but to see it as a quest that compels us to explore otherness and difference, ultimately leading us away from the modern obsession with the self.
My Badiou’s words are for anyone who believes that loving can change the way we think and that thinking can change the way we love.
