“Amazing stories! Incredible quotes! Sordid details! This book shows that a genius in the realm of thought can be a dummy in the land of love.” — Tom Morris, author of If Aristotle Ran General MotorsWhat do René Descartes,  John Locke, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and Jean-Paul Sartre have in common? That’s right: they were all hopeless failures when it came to romance. Author Andrew Shaffer explores the paradox at the core of Western philosophical thought—that history’s greatest thinkers were also the most pathetic lovers to ever walk the earth. With razor-sharp wit and probing insight, Shaffer shows how it’s the philosophers’ missteps, as much as their musings, that are able to truly boggle the intellect.

Unfortunately for Abelard, the maid had her own feelings for him:
I am in love with you, Abelard; I know you adore Héloïse, and I do not blame you; I desire only to enjoy the second place in your affections. Do not perplex yourself with scruples; a prudent man should love several at the same time, then if one should fail he is not left unprovided.
Henry wrote, “Love is the profoundest of secrets. Divulged, even to the beloved, it is no longer Love.”
“It’s always nice to know that no matter how badly you’ve screwed up your love life, someone else has done far, far worse
