The history of art and literature is a history of unrequited love, reminding us of the extraordinary human capacity to transform suffering into beauty. Unrequited love also serves as a reminder of the tragic nature of human experience. We explore responses to unrequited love from philosophy, psychoanalysis, and art. Should we mourn or celebrate it? What can it teach us about ourselves? Is anyone to blame? In this event, three speakers address unrequited love through philosophy, psychoanalysis and art.
