Chapter One

In reply to ty very much for all those titles! and for caution (nm) DAisym, posted by zenhussy on June 13, 2007, at 18:29:26

What I like about this book is that it takes a subject like love and tries to figure out the scientific aspects of it. And this first chapter starts with that -- the history of feelings and amour and how long it has taken us to even conceptualize ways to understanding them. I think some anti-Freud sentiment leaks out, which is slightly amusing because he makes it sound like Freud was given free-reign and "everyone" bought into his ideas, lock, stock and barrel.

The major question of the first chapter, for me, is: "What will making a study out of love and emotions tell us? What will we learn that is useful?" As we go through the chapters, I want to keep this question in mind, to see if we get the same, if any, answers.
