Save Event: Self-Conscious Emotions

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Love in post-modernity is an emotional collective utopia which expresses people’s feelings, far from being an instrument of liberation collective, it works as social anesthesia.


Although the yearning to fall in love is very common, nowadays the phenomenon ‘LOVE’ is rarely frequent in contemporary society. The people capable of love are by force the exception; love is inevitably a marginal phenomenon.

The clash between ideal love and pure reality becomes an authentic tragedy. The expectation and the idealization of someone or feelings is a source of an exceptional suffering for the human being, because the reality in front of the idealization produces frustration and pain.

Postmodern love is superficial, fast, intense and narcissist. In an age based on
selfishness and individual ego-centrism, the folly of falling in love is common and evanescent. Love, more than being a reality is an emotional utopia of a world hungry for intense and strong emotions.
