Just in time for Valentine’s Day, philosophy professor Michael W. Austin, examines authentic love with a little help from Bono. In a Pyschology Today blog post titled Authentic Love, Kierkegaard and U2, the concept of losing love to find romance is explored.
In the song “A Man and a Woman” from the album How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb, Bono confesses that “I could never take a chance, of losing love to find romance, in the mysterious distance, between a man and a woman.” In this song, there are striking parallels with a Kierkegaardian understanding of married love.
