Love Lost; Love Regained
Eva Illouz, Simon May, Joanna Kavenna. Rowan Pelling chairs.
In our transient world, true love seems for many increasingly illusory. Must love be stripped of its transcendental value? Or can we fashion a new idea of love which fuses sacred and secular, rather than one which feels like an unrealisable fairytale?
Rowan Pelling asks Israeli sociologist Eva Illouz, Nietschean philosopher Simon May, and awardwinning novelist Joanna Kavenna what love means now.
