Brian Earp on Addictive Love

Brian Earp, Philosophy, Psychiatry, & Psychology

Can love be an unhealthy addiction? If you can't kick the habit (or heartbreak) cold turkey, can science help? On this episode, we are joined by Dr. Brian Earp. Dr. Earp is the Associate Director of the Yale-Hastings Program in Ethics and Health Policy at Yale University and is a Research Fellow at the Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics at the University of Oxford. He co-authored of Love Drugs: The Chemical Future of Relationships from Stanford University Press, and has published extensively on moral psychology, experimental philosophy, and bioethics. He joined us today to discuss his research on love addiction, including his 2017 Philosophy, Psychiatry & Psychology paper, "Addicted to love: What is love addiction and when should it be treated?", which has been cited in many publications, including The New York Times and New Scientist.
