Gaston Bachelard on intimacy

February 12, 2010

“My research is devoted to the domain of intimacy, to the domain in which psychic weight is dominant. I shall therefore put my trust in the power of attraction of all the domains of intimacy. There does not exist a real intimacy that is repellant. All the spaces of intimacy are designated by attraction. Their being is well-being.”

(from his great book The Poetics of Space)
