The Couple: Intimate Relations in a New Key

Zürich, Switzerland: LIT Verlag (2016)
  Copy   BIBTEX


This book is about the couple, which I consider to be both the origin and the foundation of a strong social self. Despite increasing self-realisation, the individual is always in need of justification through an intimate relationship in which both partners accept one another as they are. In view of the process of global urbanization, empathy and reliability are the royal road to overcoming existential loneliness.
