A Fairytale Romance: Do we need relationships to thrive?

1 x 43 HD

From Romeo and Juliet to Sleepless in Seattle, we think that love completes us. But the ancient Greeks thought this idea was the height of stupidity. Are relationships necessary for human flourishing? Are we really built to be together forever? Or should we seek radical new forms of love?


Screw the Fairytale author Helen Croydon, UCL anthropologist Kit Opie, and psychologist Susan Quilliam imagine new models for relationships.
