A General Theory of Love

by Thomas Lewis

A General Theory of Love

Thomas Lewis

Overview

If you've ever been in love, you know how great it can be. Life seems perfect when you think you've found 'the one' and get to spend every day with them. But then you break up and your entire world falls apart.

Too often we trust the lyrics of love songs to get us through the good times and the bad. But society's ideas of affection aren't as mysterious as we've come to think. If you're looking for guidance on maintaining a healthy relationship, look to the science. This is just what you'll get with Thomas Lewis' 2001 book, A General Theory of Love. Lewis states that our nervous systems are not self-contained – our brains link up with those people closest to us.

Favorite Quote

"Total self-sufficiency turns out to be a daydream whose bubble is burst by the sharp edge of the limbic brain. Stability means finding people who regulate you well and staying near them."
