(p.1) Introduction
The Arc of Love

Aaron Ben-Ze'ev

University of Chicago Press

The introduction addresses the key issues to the book's central concern: how to make love stay. The abundance these days of romantic and sexual options facilitates finding love, but obstructs keeping it for a long time. However, the need for love does not disappear in later life, or when love is mature. The introduction outlines these issues and foreshadows the philosophical guidelines covered in the book: conceptual and practical tools for choosing a romantic partner, overcoming romantic compromises, and fostering enduring love.
