Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Originally published in 1966 and now recognized as a classic, Norman O. Brown's meditation on the condition of humanity and its long fall from the grace of a natural, instinctual innocence is available once more for a new generation of readers. Love's Body is a continuation of the explorations begun in Brown's famous Life Against Death. Rounding out the trilogy is Brown's brilliant Apocalypse and/or Metamorphosis.

Synopsis:

'Love's Body is a modern Thus Spake Zarathustra. Norman O. Brown is variously considered the architect of a new view of man, a modern-day shaman, and a Pied Piper leading the youth to America astray. His more ardent admirers, of whom I am one, judge him one of the seminal thinkers who profoundly challenge the dominant assumptions of the age.

About the Author

Norman O. Brown (1913-2002) was Professor of Humanities, Emeritus, at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and author of Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History.
