Romantic love presents some of life's most challenging questions.
Can we choose who to love? Is romantic love rational? Can we love more than one person at a time? And can we make ourselves fall out of love?
In On Romantic Love, Berit Brogaard attempts to get to the bottom of love's many contradictions. This short book, informed by both historical and cutting edge philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience, combines a new theory of romantic love with entertaining anecdotes from real life and accessible explanations of the neuroscience underlying our wildest passions.
