Reno publishes new book exploring ‘intellectual love’
Seth Reno, associate professor in the Department of English and Philosophy, has recently published a book on “intellectual love” with Liverpool University Press. The book, “Amorous Aesthetics: Intellectual Love in Romantic Poetry and Poetics, 1788-1853,” is the first book-length study on intellectual love in the Romantic era. As Reno explains, “Intellectual love is a kind of love that connects the individual to the entire world – to the universe – rather than one particular person or object.”
Reno’s book traces the evolution of intellectual love from its initial expression by Baruch Spinoza through adoption and adaptation in 18th Century philosophy, as well as its emergence in the works of six major Romantic poets.
