Course Description :   The third part of the 3-fold course series on love covers the period since the late 18th Century to  nowadays.   The   word   ‘Romanticism’   describes   a   historical   period   during   which   individuals   began   to  emphasize their personal emotional life over public and social considerations.  To be true to one’s  feelings and inclinations started to seem more important than social conformity.   In this new  scheme, love became a touchstone of personal self-realization.  The aim of love was to find, not  just a socially profitable match, but a kindred soul, a mirror, and an opportunity to realize one’s  unique personality.  For this reason, the Romantic lover is said to cultivate his emotions; at times  they seem more important indeed than the beloved.    The cultural evolution since Romanticism confirms this emphasis on the inner personal life.  Psychoanalysis, modern psychology, sexology variously focus on the individual self: they seek to

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
