The one, Eva, is a scientist, with a PhD in physical chemistry, while Thomas... More > is an educator, philosopher, poet and historian. Based on communication across two countries and many spheres of knowledge, we decided to write these essays since we felt that our conversations were of more than personal interest, and that they raised certain fundamental issues about the limits and nature of philosophical and scientific inquiry, that might be of interest to other thinkers and readers worldwide. . These essays can in a sense be considered to be footnotes to a series of unfinishable conversations. If they can be of service in encouraging other contemporary thinkers and friends to ask difficult questions, and to extend the boundaries of scientific and philosophical thought, then we will be satisfied that our work has not been in vain.< Less

This Muses Love Journal remains the only academic journal being published anywhere in the world on the nature of love. 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
