Abstract

The power of fear and the need for happiness are equal, wrote Adorno in Minima Moralia (2001, p. 223) describing in a phrase the inevitable contradictions of the human condition. Mother and motherhood reflect both, fear and need, transforming eachother in a constant dialogue that mediates the various expressions of our sociopsychological transformations. A dialogue unready to be completed as long as our worldviews sustain hierarchies that manipulate the need and the fear.
