In this review I’m going to discuss the book Dating Philosophy for Everyone: Flirting With Big Ideas.
First and foremost, let me say that this is a philosophy book that discusses dating and not the other way around.
” How does one practice vulnerability without any security, any promises, any covenant?
How does one react to anxiety in the relationship without always becoming defensive? Each of us is left with a basic question: How does the grace of Christ meet us in the midst of emotionally charged, often over-spiritualized, life-encompassing performance anxiety?
How flirting should be defined is discussed in great details and makes points including: First, the flirter should act with the intention to do things which are disposed to raise flirter-flirtee romance and/or sex to salience for the flirtee, in a knowing yet playful manner.Since scans are not currently available to screen readers, please contact JSTOR User Support for access. Progressing from the first flirtatious moment of eye contact to the selection of a "mate," this enlightening book offers playful philosophical explorations of the dating game for anyone who has dated, is dating, or intends to date again.As it lays out in its forward, aims to discuss areas ranging from ancient teachings to the intimacy in a virtual space (that is, the internet).This book is not a guide to dating but instead more a guide to better understanding aspects of dating and to a certain degree relationships in general.
