Turning towards a radiant ideal
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

Love is an entirely private individualistic, psychologistic matter for the subject as existential monad pursuing his/her individual self-interested actions in an unlimited market of possible partners. In the Aristophanes' formulation anticipates the mass psychology of neoliberalism, the utilitarianism of the 'present circumstances'. P. Sorokin's thesis in The Crisis of Our Age and The Ways and Power of Love is remarkably similar to Taylor's A Secular Age. In the immediate aftermath of World War II Sorokin established at Harvard the Research Centre in Creative Altruism. Stephen's method of the artist/priest is that of cultivating abilities for apprehending the integratis, harmonia and claritas of the radiant ideal. Radiant ideal appears in epiphanic beautiful moments of immanent transcendence, a method that he systematically applies in Ulysses and Finnegans Wake.
