Helen Fisher: What we want

 

In a talk at the PopTech Conference in 2014, biological anthropologist Helen Fisher walks us through the biology of love. From the importance of one-night stands to the solidity of marriage, Fisher shreds the common wisdom of what love is and isn’t in the 21st century.  The talk is about 30 minutes long.  It's an entertaining overview of Helen's past and recent work on romance, SSRIs, personality types, and the future of sex.

Great! Human and divine love are related, I’m sure. But I suggest that you re-think framing it as the difference between Eros and Agape. Humans feel Agape-type love for others.
