On Love is globally bestselling novelist-philosopher Alain De Botton’s iconic debut—the novel that launched his decorated literary career; and a funny, profound, and searingly true-to-life exploration of love.A man and a woman meet over casual conversation on a flight from Paris to London, and so begins a love story—from fist kiss to first argument, elation to heartbreak, and everything in between. Each stage of the relationship is illuminated with starling clarity, as de Botton explores emotions often felt but rarely understood. Now, in tandem with the arrival of The Course of Love—de Botton’s first novel in twenty years and one about mature love—we celebrate the timeless debut about young love that serves as The Course of Love’s precursor and companion.Reissued with a brilliant introduction by the New York Times bestselling author of How Should a Person Be?, Shelia Heti, On Love is a contemporary classic that should be read by anyone who has ever fallen in love.

It is the kind of book which content you know already, but emphasised with philosophical thoughts behind why we love the way we do; why love often is associated with pain. Most of all, it's a book which sentences are strung together in the most wonderful way that sing to you. Witty, eloquent, poignant, all in the right way. Alain de Botton is a master in his own right.

MissLaiLaihat Zitat gemachtvor 2 Jahren
Preferable in almost every way, the philosophy of mature love is marked by an active awareness of the good and bad within each person, it is full of temperance, it resists idealization, it is free of jealousy, masochism, or obsession, it is a form of friendship with a sexual dimension, it is pleasant, peaceful, and reciprocated (and perhaps explains why most people who have known the wilder shores of desire would refuse its painlessness the title of love).

A best friend and a lover — my ideal relationship.

be loved by someone is to realize how much they share the same needs that lie at the heart of our own attraction to them
