Few areas of human experience have been as steadily neglected in scientific and professional literature as has romantic love. And when not neglected. the topic has often suffered from approaches that rely either on artificial laboratory experiments or armchair speculation. This new book is the first to provide a comprehensive, integrated account of scientific knowledge and research into the nature and experience of romantic love The book is unique in other ways as N+-ell. It does not limit attention to a particular developmental phase but follows love's changing forms from childhood into old age- It does not constrict its approach but presents various theoretical perspectives (including cognitive, behavioral, and psychodynamics and methods of research (including personal accounts. surveys, field research, and clinical interviews). It does not focus solely on the individual but also explores the role of love in group dynamics and in the life of the community. In so doing, the book supplies a wealth of information that is research-based and yet remains recognizably true to our personal experience. On Love and Loving will therefore be of interest to social and behavioral scientists. therapists, counselors. educators-anyone. in fact, who works with people and seeks to deal firsthand with human experience. By examining the many myths. hypotheses. and everyday beliefs about romantic love in the light of scientific research and investigation, it helps to demystify one of the most overwhelming; and significant occurrences in an individual's life.
