The Paradox of Love


”If it’s not a paradox, it’s not true.” - Suzuki
 
This lecture will be based on Dr. McGehee’s book by the same title in which he addresses the lack of sophistication we have in our culture concerning the concept of love. It is said you can tell the sophistication of a culture by the number of words it has for a concept. Eskimos (Inuits) have 50 + words for snow.. In English, we have only one word for love...He will offer the three Greek words for love: eros, philia, and agape, and there understandings, plus mother love, father love and other love..In addition, the opposite of love will be addressed. His book will be available for purchase.
