About this book
Philosopher Simon Hay challenges and dissects our resilient ruling ideas of love, showing how they are the product of a long and powerful cultural heritage, and arguing against the belief that love is the solution to finding meaning, security and happiness in life.
Love - unconditional, selfless, unchanging, sincere, and totally accepting - is worshipped as the West's only universal religion. To challenge it is one of our few remaining taboos. In this book, the author does just that, dissecting our resilient ruling ideas of love and showing how they are the product of a long and powerful cultural heritage.
