Example text

1984, 1381a 35-8, p. 2200) Because there are different degrees of good will, there are different degrees to which we wish to benefit the recipients of our care, just as there are different kinds of care appropriate to different sorts of recipients. We can reasonably wish to comfort a person but not our dearly loved drawing by Grunewald; we can wish to be approved of and cared for by our lover, or by God, but not by a work of art. We can try, with some success, to preserve a work of art in its original physical condition, but we cannot do this to a spouse.

It is a difficult question, therefore, how often pure sexual desire, of the sort described by Goldman, actually occurs, and how well we can recognize its presence. Tov-Ruach comments that men interpret sexual relations with women as 'an assurance of unconditional, unjudgmental attentive acceptance'. She goes on to assert that 'the excitement of adult male sexuality comes in part from the hope that sexual bonding will assure him what he had received in infancy from his mother: physical satisfaction from an unjudgmental other'.

The agent's evaluation of what is wanted or loved may well be sound although the craving or love remains unaffected by it. The person in this situation is foolishly infatuated because weak-willed. A third type is that of the agent who exhibits bad judgment and misvaluation for reasons such as ignorance and recklessness. What is common, however, to these three types of infatuation is clearly not the absence of favourable evaluation. It is, rather, the agent's inability to scrutinize his or her desire critically - an inability seen by Freud, in the case of love, as the result of the replacement of the ego ideal by the beloved.
