Cupid's Arrow by Robert J. Sternberg

Book Description

In this absorbing book, renowned psychologist Robert J. Sternberg presents a psychological approach to human relationships that reveals how and why people fall in and out of love. Fascinating reading for anyone who wants to learn more about love, Cupid's Arrow draws on fields ranging from history to cognitive science to folklore, offering a comprehensive account of love in its many forms. Grounded in Sternberg's own 'triangular theory', the book explores the many varieties of love as different combinations of intimacy, passion, and commitment. Using this theory as a focal point, Cupid's Arrow delivers an interesting perspective on the experience of love during the lifetime of the individual as well as a rich history of the conceptions of love throughout the ages.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Building on concepts introduced in an earlier book, Triangle of Love, psychologist Sternberg has produced a serious but very readable many-faceted history of love - over time and over the lifespan of an individual. He proposes that all love is defined according to the particular combination of passion, commitment and intimacy within each relationship, and explores seven basic types of love, including, for example, romantic love and infatuation. It's an accessible and fascinating mix of psychology, history, myth and science. Although not explicity a self-help guide, many readers will identify with the mini case histories, issues and characters described. (Kirkus UK)
