ByMARYAM PAKNAHAD JABAROOTY

Approaching love as a strong force in the intersection between politics and religion, as well as a useful key concept for a new political theory of global revolution in this study allows us a critical understanding of the relationships between technology, politics, and culture. This chapter is focused on discourses of couples love that construct virtual bodies that participate in both emotional and relational (passionate and compassionate) aspects of love. In this construction the expression of attached or surrounded relations as well as the concept of love as an emotion is important. Therefore, I use the terms couples love and love relation to avoid naming and subjugating diff erent relationships formed by or through love.
