Romantic love has been characterized as a conscious irrational state, fantastical in its nature, a transformed state which never lasts, a state which is transitory and intermittent at best. While there is some truth to this claim, various unconscious states of love and love in its developing, ripening or fading stages do not fit this profile. Written with a general audience in mind, On Romantic Love offers a new theory of love as a partially unconscious, sometimes rational and always controllable emotion, while explaining some of the neuroscience underlying our wildest passions.

Brogaard's book is written to be accessible to general readers without sacrificing philosophical content. It offers more than enough interesting current theoretical work to merit serious attention by professional readers. Whimsical line drawings by illustrator Gareth Southwell add to the book's appeal. Essential. Choice ... it is a helpful manual to be used in case of being harmed in love... Metapsychology Online Reviews It is fascinating in that it discusses so much literature - both in philosophy and in science - that the reader is bound to learn something new. In addition, Brogaard does not shy away from critically evaluating the ideas she presents ... I recommend the book to anyone who wants to know more about the topic. Hichem Naar, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
