SEXUALITY

SEXUALITY | Kinship | Scoop.it

“The demonization of sexuality is perhaps understandable given its individuational character. It is not simply a harmless biological activity, but rather a symbol for something that relates to the meaning of our lives, to our striving and longing for the Divine.

Sexuality offers us symbols for all aspects of individuation. The encounter with the parental figures is experienced in the incest drama. The confrontation with the shadow leads to the destructive sado-masochistic components of the erotic. The encounter with one’s soul, with the anima and animus, with the feminine and the masculine, can have a sexual form. Self-love and love for others are experienced bodily in sexuality, whether via fantasies or activities. Nowhere is the union of all opposites, the unio mystica, the mysterium coniunctionis, more impressively expressed than in the language of eroticism.” – Adolf Guggenbühl-Craig

Kinship - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Kinship is a term with various meanings depending upon the context. This article reflects the long-standing use of the term in anthropology, which is usually considered to refer to the web of social relationships that form an important part of the lives of most humans in most societies, although its exact meanings even within this discipline are often debated (see below).

In other disciplines, kinship may have a different meaning. In biology, it typically refers to the degree of genetic relatedness or coefficient of relationship between individual members of a species.[citation needed] It may also be used in this specific sense when applied to human relationships, in which case its meaning is closer to consanguinity or genealogy.

In a more general sense, kinship may refer to a similarity or affinity between entities on the basis of some or all of their characteristics that are under focus. This may be due to a shared ontological origin, a shared historical or cultural connection, or some other perceived shared features that connect the two entities. For example, a person studying the ontological roots of human languages (etymology) might ask whether there is kinship between the English word seven and the German word sieben. It can be used in a more diffuse sense as in, for example, the news headline "Madonna feels kinship with vilified Wallis Simpson", to imply a felt similarity or empathy between two or more entities.
