One interesting passages I think is where he says, “This may also serve as a hint to explain the paradox of why it was especially in Europe’s most Christian period and only under the pressure of Christian value judgments that the sexual drive was sublimated into love.” Anyone have any idea about where he is coming from? Yes, people say that they love each other if justifies having sex, if justification is the right word, maybe outside of marriage. But does he think it was the Christians who redirected the notion of sex into love for one another?

Another interesting thing I thought was he talked about how humans are herd animals and we are born to obey, like animals, but are we actually born to obey?
