Existentialism & Romantic Love: An Interview with Dr Skye Cleary.

exrlOur video-interviews are normally quite short, but I took the opportunity of chatting (via Skype) to Skye Cleary in New York, to have an extended conversation with her about the ideas in her book Existentialism and Romantic Love.

Skye talks about the key thinkers she makes use of in the book, and about traditional romantic ideas of your ‘soulmate’, and ends with 5 Tips for those thinking about romance.

You can also follow Skye on Twitter at @Skye_Cleary, and of course, I am at @davidwebster

 

You can also hear Dr Cleary, and two other philosophers, in conversation about romantic love on Australia’s ABC Radio Network Show The Philosopher’s Zone HERE.
