Description:

Michael Hardt identifies five ways in which love has been destroyed as a political concept: 1. Love of the same or as an idenitarian concept; 2. Segregation of eros and agape; 3. Love merging in unity, thus, love is the destruction of difference; 4. Reduction of love to charity; 5. Love as a passion or a sensation, denying its productivity. In this premier episode of Adventures Within, I discuss the ways in which love has been destroyed as a political concept in order to define an unadulterated embodiment of love, which forms the basis of The Revolution, so that we may "return," as Hardt would say, "to a love that hasn’t yet been realized." Robert's episode 1 playlist.
