on why theoretically savvy love always becomes stupid love, dice la Ronell
You said whaaaat?
Love signals the ‘permission granted’ status of shared stupidity, a descent into the bestial abandon of an ecstatic language. As sheer surrender, loves opens the channels for the imbecilic effusions of being-with. Laws legislating social intelligence and sense-making operations are suspended for the duration of language-making scenes of love. This could also mean that you have to get real down and prodigiously stupid to fall for love, or that stupidity is a repressed ground of human affectivity that only love has the power to license and unleash*.
Stupidity, Avita Ronell
*Igual de estúpido que citar a alguien para decir que el amor es siempre estúpido. Senda tontería. Pero esta señora me da gracia.
