Love's Philosophy explores the basic expressions of love. In this book, White takes into account classical and historical perspecitives. His reflections explain the historical and contemporary formations of love, and offer alternative models to that most encompassing sensation, love.

Review:

A lovely book, written with grace and love for his subject. . . . White presents a balanced and powerful account of love that incorporates strong emotional connectedness with a moral responsiveness to the needs of the other. White stresses the deep bond between love and self-fulfillment and sees clearly the ways in which this overcomes the false dichotomy between selfishness and altruism. He traces his theme of self-fulfillment through four forms of love--friendship, romantic love, parental love, and love of humanity--and does an excellent job of integrating the contemporary discussion of these issues with his position.--Lawrence M. Hinman, director, The Values Institute

This work is of value for its historical perspective, its analysis of the four kinds of love, and for its attention to the future of love. Recommended for anyone--general readers and lower-division undergraduates to researchers--interested in love, emotions in general, or theories of emotion.--CHOICE

Synopsis:

Love comes in many forms and touches all our lives. Despite its changing history, it remains constant in human experience. This book explores the basic expressions of love - friendship, romance, parenthood and humanitarian love - in classical and contemporary perspectives. It posits the argument that the philosophical oblivion of love has been a mistake. By examining both the historical and contemporary formations of love, the author proposes alternative models to guide both our thinking and our experience of loving.
