Why we love

A world without Love is a deadly place – Shakespeare. But what is Love? George Bernard Shaw ones said: Love consists of overestimating the differences between one woman and another. Helen Fisher is an anthropologist with Rutgers University, specializing in gender differences and the evolution of human emotions. Her most recent book is Why We Love: The Nature and Chemistry of Romantic Love. In this wide-ranging talk, she outlines the bio-chemical foundations of love (and lust), and discusses the natural talents of women, and their new significance in the modern world.
