Abstract

[According to the Edicts of Love, a set of amorous ordinances promulgated in Paris in the late 1660s, the greatest of all the wrongs against love was nonchalance. Lack of concern, insouciance or indifference distanced the lovers from each other and blinded them to the delicacies of attention, the patience and care that erotic liaison requires. Nonchalance, literally lack of heat, not only meant that the heart had grown cold, and the ear waxed over, but it also reflected an inattention to love that the Edicts condemned in terms of a mental slackening, a loss of intelligence, a stupidity that was both shameful and disassociative.]
