LO STRETTO LEGAME TRA EROS E AGAPE NELLA FENOMENOLOGIA DI MARION
The aim of my paper is to deepen the phenomenology view developed by Jean-Luc Marion in his book “The Erotic Phenomenon”. He distinguishes the body from the flesh. I am identical with my flesh even before I enter the world and take on a body. Unlike the body, the flesh touches and feels; most of all, “it only touches bodies in feeling itself touch them” (38). But what is the relationship between eros and agape? I will defend his attempt to unite agape and eros. According to Marion, eros and agape are “two names selected among an infinity of others in order to think and to say the one love” (221).
