For Better For Worse: Essays on Sex, Love, Marriage, and More


For Better For Worse: Essays on Sex, Love, Marriage, and More

English | 2020 | ISBN-13 : 978-1913260057 | 197 Pages | PDF. EPUB, AZW3 | 22.3 MB


Love, like madness, can only fill the models that society makes available.

We are the ultimate social animal. Our intimate relationships are the most important thing in our life, often, more important than life itself-insofar as we would die for those we love.

But at a time of unprecedented social and technological change, the path to the intimacy that we crave has been confused, leaving us more connected and yet more alone and uncertain than ever before.

This book is intended as a thinking person's guide to marriage and its alternatives, and to human relationships and sexuality in general.

Even if you have already determined your destination, even if you have already set sail, this book should help you to navigate the storms and doldrums that lie ahead, and, more important still, to question the very purpose and value of your journey.

A tour-de-force: erudite, funny, and even wise. -Prof Anthony Synott, author of The Body Social and Re-Thinking Men

Burton guides the reader to unlearn, rediscover, and return to wholeness. It is a journey out of Plato's cave... -The International Review of Books

Burton is never short of an interesting and sharp judgment. -Prof Peter Toohey, Psychology Today

I've read many Neel Burton books. He's a wonderful writer and able to immerse you lightly in pretty heavy stuff. -Adrian Bailey, Vine Voice

Burton's writing blends deep knowledge of his subject with lively anecdote and a genuine concern for how we might draw on the insights of psychology and philosophy to live a better life. Highly recommended! -Gareth Southwell, philosopher and writer
