Infinity of Desire – Graham Ward

Now, while I hold to the importance of the apophatic tradition in cutting through our projections and fetishes of God, nevertheless I would maintain that the infinity of our desire for the other is only possible on the basis of the infinity of the other’s desire for me, and that it is only on that basis of participation in that prior divine erotic giving and receiving, that each of us is able to give to each other.
