From the Publisher
Distinguished psychologist Dr. Nathaniel Branden offers us a new understanding of the meaning of romantic love--what love is and what it depends on for fulfillment. His vision of love is at once passionate and thoroughly appropriate to our times and grounded in our nature as human beings. He reveals romantic love to be a pathway not only to extraordinary joy but also to profound self-discovery. Among the many challenging questions he explores are:
How does romantic love evolve?
What is the distinctive nature of romantic love?
What is the difference between mature and immature love?
What is the role of sex in romantic love?
Does romantic love necessarily imply sexual exclusivity?
How can we help romantic love to last?
How do we deal with jealousy?
For all those who long to love and yet wonder whether their dreams are attainable, The Psychology Of Romantic Love shows the way to translate dreams into reality.
