HAU

Afterword: What's love got to do with it?

Michael Lambek

Abstract


I discuss a set of papers that examine the concept of personhood in Christianity and offer a number of clarifications and suggestions. I suggest examining the ostensible opposition between individual and dividual through the lens of structuralism but also propose that rather than distinct social types it may be a matter of incommensurable forms of perception. I offer the tentative suggestion that love is at once a core symbol within Christianity, an index of “modernity,” and a manifestation or expression of dividuality.


Keywords
