ISSS 431H - History of Love, Marriage and Other Western Delusions

This course is intended as a serious, but intermittently lighthearted look at a supposedly lighthearted but serious subject … love, and especially at the sort of love that culminates, and often self-destructs, in the institution called marriage. Students will examine the relationship between romantic love – both heterosexual and non-heterosexual – and other forms of love – the love of family, the love of country, and even the love of God. The exploration will involve the close study of philosophical, religious, literary, and historical texts, together with a careful viewing of several films.  (IR)
