Review:

A book that deserves to be as widely read as Erich Fromm's The Art of Loving.

--Kathryn Hughes , Literary Review, London

From the Back Cover:

In his widely acclaimed trilogy The Nature of Love, Irving Singer traced the development of the concept of love in history and literaure from the Greeks to the twentieth century. Now in a sequel to his previous work, Singer explores a different approach. A "systematic mapping" of the various facets of love, the present volume is an extended essay that offers a philosophical and psychiatric theory of his own. Rich in insight into literature, the history of ideas, and the complexities of our being, The Pursuit of Love is a thought-provoking inquiry into fundamental aspects of all human relationships.
