‘Aristotle and the Ends of Eros’
Emanuela Bianchi | New York University
 

While eros is of key philosophical significance for Plato, it all but disappears in Aristotle’s thought, replaced by that more rational and reciprocal relation, philia. This paper explores the demise of eros in Aristotle via an investigation of the ancient epithet erōs lusimelēs, and suggests, with the assistance of Julia Kristeva, that it may reappear in other forms in his corpus, disguised and sublimated yet still operative.
