The path of the meeting by Mind Map: The path of the meeting

1. Infidelity is not believing that one will find what they are looking for in the bond they have with the other and, in short, that they will look elsewhere.

2. writer

2.1. Jorge Bucay

3. Story

3.1. Is the nature of man social or lonely?

3.2. Montaigne argued that man lives in society because he needs it and not because he likes to do so.

3.3. For Machiavelli, society was important as a control mechanism to restrain the particular and personal interests of human nature.

3.3.1. If man were not subject to rules and prohibitions, he would live in a perpetual war for power.

3.4. Rousseau affirms: we are neither beasts nor gods, we are human beings, and therefore we essentially need the consideration of others. Human nature is to feel incomplete in solitude.

3.5. Adam Smith develops all his economic theory affirming that the search for the possession of goods is not because of wealth itself, but because one knows that with possessions one wins the sympathy and approval of others.

4. Part 1 - Vertical Encounters

4.1. Loving and showing you that I love you can be two different things for me and for you. And in these, as in all things, we can be in absolute disagreement without necessarily either of the two being wrong.

4.2. Affection

4.2.1. In order to build an intimate relationship, there are certain things that have to happen

4.2.1.1. Loving is a feeling; be in love, a passion. Love consists, ultimately, in rejoicing at the very existence of the other.

4.2.1.2. Trust in an intimate relationship implies such a degree of sincerity with the other that one does not contemplate the possibility of lying to him.

4.2.1.3. I cannot be attracted to what you were, but to what you are now.

4.3. Family relationships

4.3.1. there will always be a severe disorder in someone who does not love his own child, but there is not necessarily a severe structural disorder in someone who does not love his father or mother.

4.3.2. a certain degree of neurosis serves the children, because they are going to live immersed in a neurotic society. Erich Fromm:

4.3.2.1. “if a healthy man came to my office, my role would be to neuroticize him enough so that he could live adapted”.

5. Part 2 - Horizontal Encounters

5.1. There is no orgasm without loss of control. To think that the only thing that is worth the relationship is the last thirty seconds is a real pittance.

5.2. The important thing about any interpersonal relationship is not that one tells the other that he loves them, nor that he shows it. What is truly essential is whether the other feels loved or not.

6. Conclusion

6.1. Without the freedom to choose, there can be no loving bond. Rousseau says that we are not obliged to obey any law in the establishment of which we have not participated, and love is no exception.
