Student Directed Seminar: The Philosophy of Love and Marriage.

"What is love?" This question has consistently stayed at or near the top Google searches, and with good reason. Love - or our conceptions of it - is a highly influential force in our lives and is widely discussed in all areas of culture - in media, art, religion, science, and politics. We are constantly exposed to different messages of love, and we form different conceptions of love based on these messages. And, arguably one of the most significant life choices we make that is grounded in our ideas of love is the decision to marry or not to marry.

In this Student Directed Seminar, we will attempt to: 1) achieve a comprehensive overview of the philosophies of love and marriage; 2) critically analyze the connections between the philosophies of love and marriage; and 3) apply learned concepts to contemporary issues and views of love and marriage.
