In this shiur, delivered at Sharfmans, Rav Burg explains the inner nature of the name Yitzchak and why Yitzchak specifically is described as loving Eisav. Yitzchak laughs because while on the one hand he lives within boundaries, he has the capacity to defy all normal expectations. Some people are able to find light beyond the darkness; Yitzchak can find light within the darkness. Only Yitzchak can see beyond the behavior of Eisav and expect the unexpected.
