The novel became a part of the "Human Comedy" in 1845. The struggle of Balthazar Claes in his quest for the Absolute, his disregard of all else save his work, and the heroic devotion of Josephine and Marguerite, are characteristic features of Balzac's art; the sordidness of life and the mad passion for the unattainable are admirably relieved, as in "Eugénie Grandet" and "Old Goriot," by a certain nobility and purity of motive.< Less

Perhaps it is because love is such an elusive and all-encompassing fact of life,... More > like the air, that intellectuals ignore it and concentrate on smaller and more discrete issues? The Journal was launched in 1993 as IIPSGP’s journal on the premise that without love, and a proper understanding of love, we will never get peace on earth. That remains the operating premise behind this journal to this day. By love we mean love in all its aspects: divine, inter-human, intellectual, physical, social, sexual, emotional, aesthetic... and we also mean the study of cognate concepts such as altruism, compassion, generosity, caring, benevolence, karuna, metta, kama etc. We also approach this topic from a genuinely multicultural, multifaith and international perspective. Love does not belong exclusively to any one nation or race or faith.< Less
