Burch argues that eros as a form of love should be treated as the defining educational principle of critical pedagogy and democratic citizenship.

In tracing representations of eros from ancient to contemporary times, including recent feminist accounts, Burchs genealogical analysis highlights the remarkable yet unrecognized conceptual affinities that link eros to democracy. The author illuminates how qualities and values central to democracy, such as questioning, the intense desire to know, to revise, to envision a perceived good, and to participate in a community of inquirers, are social dispositions enabled by the emotional faculties of eros.

In rewriting eros as an organizing principle, Burch provides an interpretive framework that dares to step outside the liberal paradigm in its search to deepen and extend democratic political education.
