Beschreibung

In this entertaining and accessible exploration of love, Oxford anthropologist Dr Anna Machin dives into the science behind the myriad types of love that exist in the world, including romantic love, parental love, friendships, love for pets, football teams, religious love and even love for our smartphones.

Through original research brought to life by interviews and case studies, and encompassing such fascinating areas as polyamorous relationships, parasocial (love for a celebrity) and sacred loves, this book argues that it is time to stop putting romantic love on a pedestal. By exploring the science that illuminates the benefits of all our different close relationships, Dr Anna Machin encourages us to reconsider the importance of love in our own lives, to interrogate our own experiences, and to reconnect with the heart of what it really means to be human.

Dr Anna Machin is an Evolutionary Anthropologist. She studied Anthropology at Oxford Brookes University and University College London before gaining her PhD from Reading University in 2006. Following this she joined the Social and Evolutionary Neuroscience Research Group, headed by Professor Robin Dunbar, at the University of Oxford, where for the past decade she has pursued her work on the science and anthropology of close human relationships.
