The book is good, I mean I found many chapters interesting and easy to comprehend, but for the most part I was totally lost. The book is not for someone with little background in the philosophy of love.
I was looking forward for this book, but I was disappointed. I think it would be great for someone specialized or have an entire year dictated to research about each difficult topic in the book.
The problem is I bought all the three volumes and now I am not sure I can attempt reading the second and the third! Nov 21, Susana added it. A survey of western philosophies about love from antiquity to the Middle Ages.

In the second volume, Singer studies the ideas and ideals of medieval courtly love and nineteenth-century Romantic love, as well as the transition between these two perspectives. According to the traditions of courtly love in the twelfth century and thereafter, not only God but also human beings in themselves are capable of authentic love. The pursuit of love between man and woman was seen as a splendid ideal that ennobles both the lover and the beloved.

It was something more than libidinal sexuality and involved sophisticated and highly refined courtliness that emulated religious love in its ability to create a holy union between the participants.

In relation to romanticism itself, he distinguishes between two aspects--"benign romanticism" and "Romantic pessimism"--that took on renewed importance in the twentieth century. The Nature of Love.
