    Forms of Hatred

    Odi ergo sum: I hate, therefore I am. Some years ago I wrote a book about hatred, about its psychological morphology and, one might say, its historical anthropology. I arrived at a five-part taxonomy of hatred in an effort to bring under a single unitary framework what we have witnessed of its manifestations in recent times. As you might imagine,...

His party has picked a presidential nominee who appears unelectable and is, with each passing day, doing untold damage to the party’s...

    The Bolshoi’s Swans of Steel

    The language of ballet is one of dramatic gesture: In La Bayadère, after the beautiful temple dancer is bitten by a poisonous snake, she communicates her resignation to death by throwing her hands up in the air; when Giselle discovers her lover is betrothed, she begins to dance wildly, eventually dying of broken-hearted exhaustion; in Swan Lake,...
