View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Throughout history, no question has been pondered so profoundly as that of 'the meaning of life'. Yet, for one to presume to intuitively understand the answer has long been considered nothing short of arrogant; for surely such vital awareness is beyond the grasp of mere humans, belonging instead to some superior religious realm that must govern us from above. The Art of Eros frontally challenges this obstacle to true understanding, and points to the meaning of life as grounded within the human mind - a material mind with a genetically inherited foundation shared by mankind. The Art of Eros reveals how authoritarian social conditioning has historically served to block a natural appreciation of the meaning of life. The result has been millennia of unremitting conflict amongst mankind; for it is precisely a world structured upon pain, rather than pleasure, that facilitates authoritarian accumulation of power. Such were the cultural requirements which gave rise to the modern monotheist religions that attribute spiritual merit to suffering and violence, whilst vilifying sexuality. The Art of Eros promises that reacquaintance with the true meaning of life carries a corollary of radical personal and social evolution. The meaning of life offers the principle for a human world congruent with human nature, founded upon pleasure rather than pain.
