Gijs Bakker & Ted Noten
“In early nineteenth century chemistry, the phrase “elective affinities” or chemical affinities was used to describe compounds that only interacted with each other under select circumstances. Goethe used this as an organizing metaphor for marriage, and for the conflict between responsibility and passion.”
