About the Author

Irving Singer is professor of philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.


Far from being incompatible with the lovers' mutual understanding or successful marriage, romantic love is part of the search for and a possible element in a long-term relationship, Singer argues. He examines the putative antithesis in the writings of anti-romantics Kierkegaard, Tolstoy, and Nietzsche; discusses accounts of love by 20th-century writers, including Freud, Proust, Lawrence, Santayana, and the existentialists; and touches on some modern scientific theorizing. A sizeable final chapter presents his own views. This volume is as fascinating as its predecessors ( LJ 5/1/66; LJ 11/15/84); in scope and attention to detail, the entire work will not soon be equalled. Robert Hoffman, York Coll . , CUNY
