These critical essays bring together prominent scholars in the social sciences to consider the diverse nature of the legacy of Pierre Bourdieu in contemporary social theory. But as soon as love is reciprocated, one must be prepared to give up the passivity of simply being hurt to take on the responsibility of perpetrating hurt oneself. Then I find reasons to hate that person and think about how they failed to understand me, this super spEciAl and diFfeReNT person. Through the ordinary story of two young people, who met on an airplane from Paris to London and fell in love soon after, De Botton went into extraordinary depth in analysing the nuances, the emotional swings, the sweet and sour we all identify in a relationship.

We understand that sometimes an item arrives and it’s not quite suitable for what you needed it for - no problem. The Jesus complex was nothing more than a self-defence mechanism, I had not wanted Chloe to leave me, I had loved her more than I had ever loved a woman, but now that she had flown to California, my way of accepting the unbearable loss was to reinvent how valuable she had been in the first place.If someone thinks I am shy, I will probably end up shy, if someone thinks me funny, I am likely to keep cracking jokes. I didn’t think neurotypical or those without mental health conditions resorted to such thoughts too. Susan Hill, author of The Woman in BlackWith an introduction by Sheila HetiA unique love story and a classic work of philosophy, rooted in the mysterious workings of the human heart and mind. How could they be divine as we had hoped when they have the bad taste to approve of someone like us?

When you realise that you’re starting to move on, I think it can be a little sad that this person doesn’t have as strong an effect on you anymore. This book is worth reading because De Botton is very good at analysing each stage of his relationship with Chloe and it is fascinating to see Botton's character laid down in detail. Desperate needs bring about a hallucination of their solution: thirst hallucinates water, the need for love hallucinates a prince or princess. And there’s also something kind of sobering about how a person you cared SO deeply about no longer will have that big an impact on you because it’s the case vice versa too, you no longer have that deep impact on them.

I know I’d feel very left out and somewhat frustrated that I couldn’t just scoop out their memories and understand every aspect of their being. I love you for who you are deep in your soul, not for the colour of your eyes or the length of your legs or the size of your chequebook. There is usually a Marxist moment in every relationship, the moment when it becomes clear that love is reciprocated.
