Modern life makes questions about love intensely urgent. In a short time, the developed world has moved from a culture of authority to a culture of choice. For good or for evil, a narrow tradition-based culture has become an almost endless present-directed one. As personal mobility increases, as connections between people become more fragile, and as the question of personal identity is more challenging than ever, the meaning of love has become a central issue for reflective individuals. The author offers this book to help the modern person keep in touch with their deepest humanity in a fast-moving world.
