Abstract
Love has so honeycombed today’s ethical discourse that it’s as though we have been taken hostage by an Other whose escalating demands on our affection now carry the full force and weight of the original super-egoic injunction from which Freud so famously recoiled.1 Yet the proper answer to this loving impasse is not, as Slavoj Žižek has recently suggested, to respond with a fully “ethical” violence that shatters the loving circle but, rather, more love.
