People tend to flirt only with serious things--madness, disaster, other people's affections. So is flirtation dangerous, exploiting the ambiguity of promises to sabotage our cherished notions of commitment? Or is it, as Adam Phillips suggests, a productive pleasure, keeping things in play, letting us get to know them in different ways, allowing us the fascination of what is unconvincing? This is a book about the possibilities of flirtation, its risks and instructive amusements--about the spaces flirtation opens in the stories we tell ourselves, particularly within the framework of psychoanalysis. Phillips looks at life as a tale to be told but rejects the idea of a master plot. Instead, he says, we should be open to the contingent, and flirtation shows us the way. His book observes children flirting with their parents, our various selves flirting with one another, and literature flirting with psychoanalysis. As Phillips explores the links between literature and psychoanalysis--ranging from Philip Roth to Isaac Rosenberg, Karl Kraus to John Clare--psychoanalysis emerges as a multi-authored autobiography. Its subjects are love, loss, and memory; its authors are the analyst and the analysand, as well as the several selves brought to life in the process. A passionate and delightfully playful defense of the virtues of being uncommitted, On Flirtation sets before us the virtue of a yet deeper commitment to the openendedness of our life stories.… (més)

I flirted long enough with this. Nothing instrumental found to enlighten me or add to my life. For the most part, a reading disappointment. ( )
  MSarki | Jan 7, 2018 |
My main objection to On flirtation is that this is a book of literary criticism, rather than psychology. So instead of writing essays on these topics, they are in almost each case reviews of books. They are the kind of reviews that you find in a literary supplement, obviously very well-written. However, if I had known that these were book reviews, -- of books which I will never buy -- I would probably not have bought this book. In that sense, it is also somewhat misleading to praise the author of erudition, while in fact it is just professional knowledge.

The topics are tantalizing: On flirtation, on love, on success, depression, perversion and cross-dressing, to name a few. There are also reviews of books on Freud's circle and Erich Fromm. However, many reviews are rather technical, addressing specific issues more of interest to the professional than a layman in the field of psycho-analysis.

As an odd after-thought, the book ends with four reviews or essays of literary criticism on Philip Roth, Isaac Rosenberg, Karl Kraus and John Clare. These essays are very interesting. ( )

The fact that people tend to flirt only with serious things - madness, disaster, other people - and the fact that flirting is a pleasure, makes it a relationship, a way of doing things, worth considering.
