Item description for Science of Love: The Wisdom of Well-Being by Thomas Jay Oord...

Science Of Love explores a nascent field that is investigating the love-science symbiosis. Drawing on both science and religion, scholars are methodologically examining the connections between science and love to see how each contributes to how we understand God, ourselves, and the world in which we live. Author Thomas Oord summarizes the latest research and extends it in this book. Oord's study of love begins with the role love plays in all major world religions: Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Judaism, Islam, and Christianity. He presents his view of divine love in action as consonant with the Big Bang theory and the continual creation of the universe. He looks at sociobiology and evolutionary psychology, neurology, organismic cooperation, sex and romance, and the role of emotions as each relates to love. He then moves on to religious, ethical, and philosophical issues. These considerations are provocative and challenging. As others join the scientific inquiry into the nature of love, this book stands at a pivotal point by offering a framework for ongoing research.

Reviews - What do customers think about Science of Love: The Wisdom of Well-Being?

Brilliant Introduction to the Study of Love  Dec 13, 2007
In this brief little book Thomas Jay Oord provides a brilliant introduction to the study of love. The book ranges over topics as diverse as world religions on love, the ethics of altruism and warfare, and biological factors that affect how we think and act with regard to "the other." Oord draws upon philosophy, theology, biology, neuro-physiology, and psychology and weaves these disciplines together into one seamless fabric. The book is clearly written without being simplistic and thus provides an excellent starting point for anyone interested in altruism, other-regarding behavior, and the nature of love.
