Rosler draws from the works of Plato, Butler, and Derrida to explore the unreadability of Eros' enigma and the desire to address its mystery through assertive and noncontradictory discourse, which results in the modern objectification of Eros into defined sexual orientations. With the rise of the concept of the Freudian ego, Eros is heterosexualized and the indeterminate love for the other falls into oblivion. In an attempt to revisit Eros as a metaphysical enigma, Dr. Rosler demonstrates the necessity of turning toward the mythical grounds of the desiring-ego and the roots of philosophical dialectic thinking. Eros Revisited will appeal to those interested in cultural studies and literary theory."--BOOK JACKET."
