What Is Love, Actually?
We need philosophers and the rigor they bring to the discussions that inform our daily lives. It’s critical—particularly in our current political climate—for all of us to consider what we mean by the words we use and the concepts we refer to.
So what about love? What does that mean, really?
To ask that question properly (but never entirely answer it), we turn to Dr. Carrie Jenkins, professor of philosophy at the University of British Columbia, and a professor at the Northern Institute of Philosophy, University of Aberdeen. Dr. Jenkins just released a book called: What Love Is and What It Could Be. It’s a delightful read, and I highly suggest you pick it up.
You can find Dr. Jenkin’s personal website at Carriejenkins.net.
