 Philosophy of Love

Autumn Term 2017, Mondays, 13:00 – 15:00, ten weeks starting 2nd October

Course Tutor: Jane O’Grady.

This course will investigate the nature of love in general, concentrating on erotic love, and its philosophical history from Plato to the present; also touching on what anthropology, literature and neuroscience say about it. Questions to be considered: how far is love biological and universal, and how far it is just a local cultural concoction? Do we love a real person, or simply our own feelings, or an illusion engendered by social expectations or evolutionary imperatives? See course outline (Word doc) for more information.
