This study tries to show how we create our world through feelings. By portraying how feeling relies on imagination, idealisation, consummation and the aesthetic, a picture begins to present the basic lineaments of sex and love as well as the other parts of the spectrum to which they belong., This book is a humanistic inquiry into the nature of feeling, with particular emphasis upon the way that imagination, idealization, consummation, and the aesthetic contribute not only to the texture of our experience but also to the values that are generated by means of them. Love, sex, and compassion are studied as modes of attachment that human beings create, very often as the outcome of prior failures in their personal relations., Singer presents a newly constellated idea of the complexity of our emotional lives, and explains how that complexity may finally be seen under the aegis of the aesthetic without narrowing or reducing it, but giving it greater meaning and satisfaction. . . . I would use a word for this book rarely employed now in the speaking of any book: it is wise; it has the wisdom to be aware of, but not to accept, the older alignments, to cherish them but also to criticize them, then to realign them into a fresh, unexpected approach.--James Engell, Harvard University, Irving Singer is Professor of Philosophy at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is the author of Sex and Explorations in Love and Sex.
