IS LOVE an art? Then it requires knowledge and effort. Or is love a pleasant sensation, which to experience is a matter of chance, something one “falls into” if one is lucky? This little book is based on the former premise, while undoubtedly the majority of people today believe in the latter.

爱是一门艺术吗?那样的话它需要知识和努力。抑或爱是一种令人愉悦的感受吗?这种观点认为爱是一种偶然现象,只有那些幸运的家伙才有机会“坠入爱河”。尽管无疑当今大多数人相信第二种观点,但这本小书将以第一种观点为前提进行阐述。


Not that people think love is not important. They are starved for it; they watch endless numbers of films about happy and unhappy love stories, they listen to hundreds of trashy songs about love-yet hardly anyone thinks that there is anything that needs to be learned about love.

并不是人们认为爱不重要。人们非常渴求爱,他们看不计其数的讲述爱情喜剧和悲剧的电影,他们听上百首关于爱的垃圾歌曲。但几乎没有人认为关于爱有些什么是需要去学习的。


This peculiar attitude is base on several premises which either singly or combined tend to uphold it. Most people see the problem of love primarily as that of being loved, rather than that of loving, of one’s capacity to love. Hence the problem to them is how to be loved, how to lovable.

这种奇怪的态度来自几个前提条件,它们或是彼此独立或是相互关联,导致了这种态度的产生。大多数人没有把爱的问题看作是如何去爱、如何获取爱的能力的问题,而是基本上把它等同为被爱的问题。因此他们的问题是如何被爱,怎样能够被爱。
