Gaze and voice as love objects

Renata Salecl and Slavoj Žižek, editors

The gaze entices, inspects, fascinates. The voice hypnotises, seduces, disarms. Are gaze and voice part of the relationship we call love ...or hate? If so, what part? How do they function? This provocative book examines love as the mediating entity in the essential antagonism between the sexes, and gaze and voice as love's medium. The contributors proceed from the Lacanian premise that 'there is no sexual relationship,' that the sexes are in no way complementary and that love - figured in the gaze and the voice - embodies the promise and impossibility of any relation between them.The first detailed Lacanian elaboration of this topic, "Gaze and Voice as Love Objects" examines the status of gaze, voice, and love in philosophy from Plato to Kant, in ideology from early Christianity to contemporary cynicism, in music from Hildegard of Bingen to Richard Wagner, in literature from Edith Wharton's "Age of Innocence" to Kazuo Ishiguro's "The Remains of the Day", and in cinema from Michael Powell's "Peeping Tom" to Kieslowski's "A Short Film on Love". Throughout, the contributors seek to show that the conflict between the sexes is the site of a larger battle over the destiny of modernity.With insights into the underlying target of racist and sexist violence, this book offers surprising revelations into the nature of an ancient enigma - love. Approaching its topic with utter disregard for predominant multiculturalist and deconstructionist commonplaces, this volume will be indispensable for anyone interested in the uses of psychoanalysis for philosophy, cultural studies, and the analysis of ideology. Contributors include: Elisabeth Bronfen, Mladen Dolar, Fredric Jameson, Renata Salecl, Slavoj Zizek, and Alenka Zupancic.
