Philosophers’ Café looks at love

  • Jun. 1, 2015 6:00 p.m.

Is love just a four letter word?

Love can be viewed as a four-letter word. There are many forms of love: patriotic love, brotherly love, spiritual love, but the most vexing kind is erotic love. So many poets and songwriters have praised its promise of ecstasy and lamented its pain. Love can seem like a four-letter word, but have we ever considered that love may not be a noun, but a verb?

Comox psychologist Dr. Frank Young will present several perspectives on this topic, and demonstrate how different parts of our brain are moved by this fascinating emotion. Moderator Peter Schwarzhoff will then open the floor for what looks to be a very engaging topic for a lively discussion at Philosophers’ Cafe.

As with each Café, Dr. Young will have just 10 minutes to introduce the topic, and then the floor is open for 50 minutes of moderated discussion.

Philosophers’ Cafe goes Wednesday, June 3 at Berwick Comox Valley, community room (1700 Comox Ave., Comox), from 7-8 p.m.
