“Amazing stories! Incredible quotes! Sordid details! This book shows that a genius in the realm of thought can be a dummy in the land of love.” — Tom Morris, author of If Aristotle Ran General Motors

What do René Descartes,  John Locke, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and Jean-Paul Sartre have in common? That’s right: they were all hopeless failures when it came to romance. Author Andrew Shaffer explores the paradox at the core of Western philosophical thought—that history’s greatest thinkers were also the most pathetic lovers to ever walk the earth. With razor-sharp wit and probing insight, Shaffer shows how it’s the philosophers’ missteps, as much as their musings, that are able to truly boggle the intellect.
Andrew Shaffer is the author ofGreat Philosophers Who Failed at Loveand, under the pen name Fanny Merkin,Fifty Shames of Earl Grey. His writing has appeared in such diverse publications asMental FlossandMaxim. An Iowa native, Shaffer lives in Lexington, Kentucky, a magical land of horses and bourbon.
