Conditions of Love: The Philosophy of Intimacy by John Armstrong

Raises one of the deepest and most puzzling questions we can put to ourselves ' What is Love?' Drawing on writers and thinkers as diverse as Plato, Tolstoy, Freud and Stendhal, John Armstrong explores how our perception of love is formed by culture and history. We join the search for a more mature conception of love without self-deception and ask whether this is even achievable. For anyone who believes or disbelieves in love.
