About This Book

" Amazing stories! Incredible quotes! Sordid details! This book shows that a genius in the realm of thought can be a dummy in the land of love. " — Tom Morris, author of If Aristotle Ran General Motors What do René Descartes,   John Locke, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and Jean-Paul Sartre have in common? That' s right: they were all hopeless failures when it came to romance. Author Andrew Shaffer explores the paradox at the core of Western philosophical thought— that history' s greatest thinkers were also the most pathetic lovers to ever walk the earth. With razor-sharp wit and probing insight, Shaffer shows how it' s the philosophers' missteps, as much as their musings, that are able to truly boggle the intellect.
