Cupid's Arrow: The Course of Love through Time

By Sternberg, Robert J

Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2000-01-13. Paperback. Very Good. light edge wear; Love is strange. It can be the source of both profound inspiration and deep misery. Its complexities and dimensions have possessed us since the beginning of time, and no emotion is as linked to human history as love. It defines who we are, what we do, and how we live and yet remains an enigmatic presence in our lives. In Cupid's Arrow, renowned psychologist Robert J. Sternberg presents a unique psychological approach to our understanding of this powerful emotion. He explores human relationships, revealing how and why people fall in and out of love. The book draws on fields ranging from history to cognitive science to folklore, offering a fascinating and comprehensive account of love in its many forms. Sternberg applies his "triangular theory," examining the many varieties of love through combinations of intimacy, passion, and commitment. Using this theory as a focal point, Cupid's Arrow delivers both a fresh perspective on the experience of love during the lifetime of the individual, and a rich history of the conceptions of love throughout the ages. This book will prove to be enlightening and engaging reading for anyone who has ever dared to try to understand love.

Gestalt Therapy Now: Theory, Techniques, Applications

By Fagan, Joen; Shepherd, Irma L

New York: Harpercollins College Div, 1971-06-01. Trade Paperback. Good. spine creasing, edge wear, covers scuffed; Gestalt therapy first moved to center stage in the early 1950s with the publication of GESTALT THERAPY: EXCITEMENT AND GROWTH IN THE HUMAN PERSONALITY written by Frederick Perls, Ralph Hefferline, and Paul Goodman. It is one of a handful of seminal texts published shortly after World War II that opened the pathways for new approaches to psychotherapy that remain in print today, over a half-century later. Interest in Gestalt therapy was limited primarily to mental health practitioners for almost twenty years when it suddenly captured the interest of many diverse groups outside the healing professions including educators, members of the clergy, and the general public. When a photograph of one of its founders, Frederick (Fritz) Perls, was featured in a story and a full-page color photograph in LIFE magazine, it became the “in” therapeutic method of the moment.
