About this book

Organised around a single question: is love possible?, Brown's book provides conceptualisations of love and its possibility from sociological, philosophical and psychoanalytic viewpoints. She argues for the importance of a psychosocial understanding of love and provides a critical discussion of the philosophy and methods of Psychosocial Studies.

Reviews

"Brown...provide[s] insightful reflections on the phenomenology of love...and offers a helpful reflection on the links between ethnography and psychoanalysis. Overall, Brown's foray into the chaotic and poetic sources of love and its role in society serves as a valuable contrast to currently fashionable quantatative and neurological reductionism." - C.J. Churchill, St. Thomas Aquinas College, Choice Magazine
