What is love? Can we explain Romeo's love for Juliet? What are desire, pleasure, sadness and the taste for power and domination? In short, how do we make sense of our passions? Going beyond the traditional dichotomy of body and soul, of the reasonable brain and the passionate body, Jean-Didier Vincent proposes a new theory of emotions which aims to harmonize our understanding of humankind. Not that he reduces love to an equation. On the contrary, he aims to show what love and beauty mean in a book whose humour is paralleled by its serious intellectual endeavour.
