Essay Questions for Love Part 1
These are the essay titles for the Love essay . The essay should be 2000 words in length. Please choose ONE of the following titles:
1. Discuss the claim that ‘the psychosocial literature on feelings and emotions, love and loss, is distorted by the absence of awareness of cultural, social and ethnic diversity.’
2. Discuss the claim that love ‘is the emotion that depends most on culture, even though we think it is psychological, universal’ (Ilouz, 2012).
3. How central is loss to human relations? Does it make sense to suggest that we live in a ‘melancholic culture’?
4. Compare and evaluate these two views of the status of psychoanalysis:
I. Psychoanalysis is the paradigmatic pseudoscience of our epoch –one that deserves to be addressed not in the thrifty spirit of ‘What can we salvage from Freud?’ but rather with principled attention to its faulty logic, its manufacturing of its own evidence, and its facile explanation of adult behaviour by reference to unobservable and arbitrarily posited childhood fantasy. (Crews, 1995)
II. Psychoanalysis undoubtedly has a real object for scientific study and has organised itself in such a way as to produce rational and consensual means of generating knowledge. (Rustin, 1991)
