Although Love is a primary essence of human living, it has always been a difficult subject to study. Scholars and researchers up to modern times have generally held that Love is a much too subjective experience to be the target of serious scientific scrutiny. The author challenges this tradition by taking the reader on an excursion of Love like no other ever attempted... subjecting Love to a totally new rigorous analysis to see if Love is "just" another subjective-emotional "interpretation" of experience by us humans - or does Love qualify as a "more objective" and scientifically valid phenomenon? If so, how could such scientific validity be demonstrated? Can Love stand up to the approaches that our scientific methods afford us as we penetrate deeper and deeper into the nature of our Universe.
What hold does Love have on us humans? Is our Universe "hard-wired" for Love? Why will Love be the most important "technology of the future"? Why is a Love-dominated world no longer an idealist's dream?
This book offers the remarkable case based on Science...
