Abstract [en]

In this article I explore love’s relation to gendered power asymmetries by comparing Anna Jónasdóttir’s, Jessica Benjamin’s and Teresa Brennan’s respective theorizations of this theme. Despite the considerable differences between these feminist frameworks, they can all be read in terms of what I call the figure of the Dominant and its Constitutive Other. This refers to the contradictory relation whereby the powerful and‘independent’existence of the one is premised on that which is other to it, as well as on the denial and obscuring of this constitutive dependence. Via a dialogue with critical realist and metaReal themes I move from a concern with how the feminine‘Other’ tacitly constitutes the masculine Dominant through practices of love, to thematizing the basic stratum of being as the constitutive Other of the oppressive economy of love. The structure of the self emerges as a central organizing principle in the oppressive relations considered, and the article explores what might be a non-violent mode of self that does not depend on suppressing the existence of that on which it depends
