The Science of Love
Science of Love by Glenn D. Wilson
Book DescriptionThe authors offer the latest scientific research on love, attraction, and human mating behaviour, looking particularly at how the modern era is affecting our sexual preferences. Entertaining and accessible, the book takes a well informed look at important principles relating to love, chemistry, gender differences, what makes a relationship last and what happens when love goes wrong. What can be gained from love? And what, if any are the emotional consequences of living without love? Between the year 2000 and the year 2010, 40 percent of households will consist of single people, and the authors help to unravel this changing phenomenon. It also examines the changing status of men and women in modern society. As people live longer, are they less content to settle for an imperfect deal? Will this lead to serial relationships replacing lifelong partnerships? In a balanced argument, the authors question the possibility that these changes are largely superficial; that evolution determines more of our behaviour than we realise. Of appeal to the general reader and academics alike, this book provides an insight into the complexities of human emotion, seduction and the need for intimacy.
