Details

Love is an unquantifiable human experience. Yet growing evidence suggests it could be the most important factor in our wellbeing. Evolutionary anthropologist Anna Machin (Why We Love) considers all the different ways in which humans love – from family, friends and lovers to pets, celebrities and even deities – and the science behind why we love and how we love.
