In Love Notes, a collection of articles, essays, and presentations, Philip McKibbin introduces the Politics of Love and explores the possibilities of this emerging theory. The Politics of Love affirms the importance of love and reimagines our relationships: to ourselves, each other, non- human animals, and the natural environment. This love is inclusive, critical, generous, and constructive. Instead of a politics of fear and distrust, of separation and narrow-mindedness, the Politics of Love presents a new vision that extends beyond individuals, families, the nation state, and even human beings: it is love that will bring about justice for other species, and it may also enable us to address climate change. This book presents an intellectual journey; it charts a course for the future, and invites you to help take the Politics of Love forward.

Philip McKibbin is a writer from Aotearoa New Zealand, of Pakeha (NZ European) and Maori (Ngai Tahu) descent. He holds a Master of Arts in Philosophy from The University of Auckland, and diplomas in te reo Maori (the Maori language) from Te Wananga o Aotearoa.
