Love: Complexities Abound


Roses in Crystal



The underlying current for many informed contemporary thinkers is that no one has access to ultimate truth. There are minor situational exceptions, of course, such as the reality that I have written this and that you are there reading it. On the other hand, it is still the case that there is no ultimate truth about the interaction between my writing and your reading of it, about my meaning and your own interpretation.

So it is with "love," or "being in love": the paradoxical perspective offers celebration for the complexities that abound in our attempts to specify the particulars of those states.

"I paid the price of solitude
But at least I'm out of debt."

Bob Dylan, "Dirge"
