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. Oord is the author and editor of many books, including Science of Love: The Wisdom of Well-Being and The Altruism Reader. Oord serves as theologian for the Institute for Research on Unlimited Love, located at Case-Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio

From Border States in the Work of Tom Mac Intyre: A Paleo-Postmodern Perspective
''Catriona Ryan has more than achieved what she set out to do.She has emphatically presented Tom Mac Intyre as a writer with a distinctive voice who not only provides a crucial link in the chain that goes back through Kavanagh to Yeats, but as a bridging figure, a transgressive author whose reflections on the Irish literary scene, and on writing more generally, have much to tell us about the ways in which constrictive critical currents can cut off living literary streams. It is clear from Catriona Ryan's painstaking excavation that Mac Intyre has been wrongly neglected. Her thoughtful and perceptive critical intervention will remedy that wrong.''

“This is a critically independent piece of work that very much constructs and defines its own project, and maps an intellectual terrain of its own. It is an impressively original and also critically self-assured piece. It is marked by a sense of intellectual brio and also by the excitement of discovery.”
– Dr Steven Vine, Swansea University
“Since Tom Mac Intyre is a writer and dramatist who has received very little critical attention, this work intervenes in an under-researched area and offers an innovative and valuable extension of the frontier of knowledge in the field of Irish literary and dramatic studies.”
– Dr Aidan Arrowsmith, Manchester Metropolitan University
