The Many Facets of Love: Philosophical Explorations
Editor: Thomas Jay Oord
Date Of Publication: Mar 2007
Poets, theologians, romantics, scientists, and revolutionaries alike have explored the many facets of love. Judging by the wide use of the word “love” and the high praise it typically receives, we might think that philosophers have thoroughly analyzed love. But this is not the case.
This book takes a step toward rectifying the neglect of a philosophical analysis of love. It brings together fifteen philosophical perspectives that explore some of love’s most important facets. Most of the essays have theistic or religious concerns in mind.
Thomas Jay Oord, Ph.D., is professor of theology and philosophy at Northwest Nazarene University, Nampa, Idaho.

From Teaching Psychology around the World: Volume 3
“McCarthy states in the preface that the book intends to 'be a current overview of teaching and learning psychology around the world', and this intention is certainly met. While no book can detail absolutely everything going on in psychology teaching and learning, this book really does give a comprehensive overview of current practice in different countries, and also looks to the future in terms of internationalising teaching across the globe. The book is a must-have for those with a keen interest in psychology teaching and learning who want to be kept abreast of current happenings in the field, perhaps for inspiration for their own teaching or just for interest. As academics, we need to be inspired to produce exciting, innovative ways of passing on our enthusiasm for psychology to others, and this book really highlights that through its collection of teaching practices from across the world.”
