Love & Science

The Institute for Research on Unlimited Love, led by bioethicist Stephen Post of Case Western Reserve University, was featured in the National Post's weekend Love & Sex Issue. The scientific study of love, including compassion and altruism, is a hot topic right now, as psychology moves away from strictly studying mental illness toward also addressing wellness, the strengths and virtues of human nature. On Friday, Post spoke about these scientific studies, and how they support the health benefits of altruism, during his keynote address at the annual meeting of the Florida Center for Science and Religion. —Heather Wax
