THE LISSOME N°4 – Love Ethic

The Lissome’s Edition N°4: Love Ethic pays tribute to bell hooks’ influential work, All about Love: New Visions. Moving beyond the confines of romantic love, the author explores love as the foundation of life that touches on everything – love of self and others (and the more than human world), societal frameworks, the material world, justice, values and spirituality, as well as experiences of loss and healing. She advocates for a cultural shift towards a love ethic, affirming everyone’s right to freedom and a fulfilling life.

Inspired by bell hooks’ heartfelt wisdom, we envision a world where love ethics permeate every aspect of our lives, fostering collective care. We’d like to invite you to join us in contemplating this transformative possibility in our latest print edition, discovering love as a powerful antidote for our challenging times, softening hearts and opening new possibilities to thrive.
