Description

Explore the many facets of our most valued emotion

Cardiologist and professor Armin Zadeh revisits psychologist Erich Fromm's The Art of Loving, a book that has fascinated him for decades. The Forgotten Art of Love examines love in its complex entirety -- through the lenses of biology, philosophy, history, religion, sociology, and economics -- to fill in critical voids in Fromm's classic work and to provide a contemporary understanding of love. This unique and wide-ranging book looks at love's crucial role in every aspect of human existence, exploring what love has to do with sex, spirituality, society, and the meaning of life; different kinds of love (for our children, for our neighbors); and whether love is a matter of luck or an art that can be mastered. Dr. Zadeh provides a fascinating, empowering guide to enhancing relationships and happiness -- concluding with a provocative vision for firmly anchoring love in our society.
