Summary/Abstract: When we relate love to jealousy and jealousy to love, we should be aware that there is a constant wish, or even desire, to “save” love from jealousy. Moreover, that the notion of jealousy has negative connotations: that jealousy is something that can wound the other; that jealousy is something one should be ashamed of (perhaps, being aggressive); that jealousy is something one should be fearful of (perhaps, being excluded); and what I consider as the most important – that because of jealousy one might suffer from being subject/ed to a kind of affection that is considered as “craziness,” but not any kind of craziness – the “craziness” that is at the same time craziness and banality. Being common. Being a common being.
