Love As Human Freedom - Paul Kottman, Espen Hammer, Omri Boehm, and Julia Peters

The Bark Room, Room M104, Sheila C. Johnson Design Center 2 West 13th Street, New York, NY 10011
Please join us on October 3rd as Paul Kottman discusses his new book Love As Human Freedom with Espen Hammer, Omri Boehm, and Julia Peters.
Rather than see love as a natural form of affection, Love As Human Freedom sees love as a practice that changes over time through which new social realities are brought into being. Love brings about, and helps us to explain, immense social-historical shifts—from the rise of feminism and the emergence of bourgeois family life, to the struggles for abortion rights and birth control and the erosion of a gender-based division of labor. Drawing on Hegel, Paul A. Kottman argues that love generates and explains expanded possibilities for freely lived lives.
