C’est… l’amour.

To benefit from one’calling[1] / 5.

Original painting by Gianni Russomando[2]




“Love, if it is, is work on work : it is a real matter, i.e. love, or it is not, or - even worse - is the ‘énamoration’ which correctly Lacan observed to end as ‘haine-amoration’, i.e. hatred, as is not who doesn’t know. Saying that it is a real matter is not just an idiom : it means that is furtherly producing something which wasn’t yet here – the good ‘Dasein’ -, with fruit or profit, i.e. with a surplus not exactly homologous to the capitalist one (I don’t join who proposes the ‘fructum ventris’ as the first fruit)”.[3]
