Reflections on Love in Our Lives – ROEN

0 Comment

Because love comes in many forms, and people experience those forms in diverse ways. Scholars who write about love, have identified at least eight forms: philia (affectionate love), pragma (enduring love), storge (unconditional familial love), eros (romantic love), ludus (playful love), mania (obsessive love), philautia (self-love), agape, (selfless love for others). The word “philosophy” literally means “love of knowledge or wisdom,” which explains why one kind of graduate degree is called “doctor of philosophy.” In this workshop, we will discuss some forms of love that each of us has experienced. Then we will write and share our writing.

Duane Roen has been tracing his roots since his teenage years, building a database with more than 32,000 ancestors. He and his wife, Maureen Roen, have also been recording their family history since 1978 by writing more than 19,000 daily journal entries on their children and other family members. Combining his professional and personal interests, Duane worked with colleagues to establish courses on writing and recording family history at Arizona State University. He also is founding coordinator of the Project for Writing and Recording Family History in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts at ASU.
