THE THINGS WE LOVE How Our Passions Connect Us and Make Us Who We Are

by | Read by Steven Jay Cohen

Contemporary Culture • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Steven Jay Cohen captivatingly introduces listeners to Dr. Aaron Ahuvia's findings on the science behind people's emotional connections with things. He explains how biology and experiences play essential roles. Using intriguing case studies, Cohen enthusiastically shares how personal identity, a sense of belonging, the act of gift giving, and individualism all affect our relationships with the objects that surround us. He uses a scholarly yet enjoyable conversational tone as he describes different examples of material attachments that can be both healthy and troublesome. Cohen passionately explains why all this matters and shares what our materialistic tendencies tell us about one another from a sociological perspective. Ahuvia offers up an entertaining and scientific viewpoint on the objects of our affections. D.Z. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2022]
