El Amor Romántico como utopía emocional de la posmodernidad El amor en la posmodernidad es una utopía colectiva que se expresa en y sobre los cuerpos y los sentimientos de las personas, y que, lejos de ser un instrumento de liberación colectiva, sirve como anestesiante social. El amor hoy es un producto cultural de consumo que calma la sed de emociones y entretiene a las audiencias. Alrededor del amor ha surgido toda una industria y un estilo de vida que fomenta lo que H.D. Lawrence llamó “egoísmo a dúo”, una forma de relación basada en la dependencia, la búsqueda de seguridad, necesidad del otro, la renuncia a la interdependencia personal, la ausencia de libertad, celos, rutina, adscripción irreflexiva a las convenciones sociales, el enclaustramiento mutuo… Este enclaustramiento de parejas propicia el conformismo, el viraje ideológico a posiciones más conservadoras, la despolitización y el vaciamiento del espacio social, con notables consecuencias para las democracias occidentales y para la vida de las personas.

How To Make The Worlds Easiest $1 Billion With all the banks paying back the TARP money, some folks are assuming that the great Wall Street bailout is finally coming to an end. But of course it isn't! Taxpayers are still guaranteeing all big bank bonds (Too Big To Fail) and subsidizing huge bank earnings and bonuses with absurdly low interest rates. But instead of bellyaching about it, you might as well just smile and cash in. After all, that's what Wall Street's doing. So here's how to make the world's easiest $1 billion: STEP 1: Form a bank. STEP 2: Round up a bunch of unemployed friends to be "bankers." STEP 3: Raise $1 billion of equity. STEP 4: Borrow $9 billion from the Fed at an annual cost of 0.25%. STEP 5: Buy $10 billion of 30-year Treasuries paying 4.45% STEP 6: Sit back and watch the cash flow in. At this spread, you should be earning at least 4% per year on your $10 billion of capital, or $400 million. You'll have made $400 million in a single year! Don't be greedy. So proceed to Step 7. STEP 7: Go public.

The Real Reason Facebook Causes One-Third Of Divorces Ah, Facebook. The social networking site that's fast becoming not just a thorn in our backsides, but the bane of our existences. If Facebook isn't selling your private information to companies these days, then it's breaking up happy marriages. What was once a tool for sharing party pics and finding long-lost friends is now the reason behind many divorces — and we're not even going to mention its part in the online stalking of ex-boyfriends, or even current ones for that matter. A U.K. divorce site (link is external) found that even in Dec. 2009, 20 percent of "behavior petitions" (which is British lingo for "reasons to file for divorce") contained the word "Facebook" in them, meaning that the site was in some way to blame for the marriage's dissolution. Just a couple of years later, that percentage jumped to 33 percent. Not surprisingly, the number-one reason why Facebook was at fault in these cases was due to "inappropriate messages to members of the opposite sex." 1.

Jacques-Alain%20Miller%20-%20Algunos%20problemas%20de%20pareja%20%2817.06.2005%29.pdf Peter Thiel: We're in a Bubble and It's Not the Internet. It's Higher Education. Fair warning: This article will piss off a lot of you. I can say that with confidence because it’s about Peter Thiel. And Thiel – the PayPal co-founder, hedge fund manager and venture capitalist – not only has a special talent for making money, he has a special talent for making people furious. Some people are contrarian for the sake of getting headlines or outsmarting the markets. For Thiel, it’s simply how he views the world. Consider the 2000 Nasdaq crash. And after the crash, Thiel insisted there hadn’t really been a crash: He argued the equity bubble had simply shifted onto the housing market. So Friday, as I sat with Thiel in his San Francisco home that he finally owns, I was curious what he thinks of the current Web frenzy. Instead, for Thiel, the bubble that has taken the place of housing is the higher education bubble. Like the housing bubble, the education bubble is about security and insurance against the future. Making matters worse was a 2005 President George W.

Nueva Escuela Lacaniana del Campo Freudiano | México DF 1-El amor en los tiempos de la peste Se ha considerado a la Edad Media como un período oscuro para la humanidad. El hombre se enfrentó a la muerte bajo sus diferentes rostros, desde las cruzadas que dejaron un elevado saldo de mortalidad, a las epidemias que azotaron sin tregua. A la peste bubónica que en el siglo XIV terminó con la tercera parte de la población de Europa, se le sumaron la malaria, la lepra, el mal de San Antón, hasta la llegada de la sífilis. Las murallas y los castillos no alcanzaron, como lo retrató Edgar Allan Poe, para alejar a la guadaña de los señores feudales. Las danzas macabras de Pieter Brueghel el Viejo, resultaron una ilustración elocuente de estas circunstancias. 2- El amor en anamorfosis Entre los siglos XI y XII surgirá en Francia, para extenderse luego en otros países, lo que por entonces se conoció como fine amour, amor sublime, amor afinado, depurado, pero no en el sentido platónico.
