Science of Breakup von Anne Freier

In Science of Breakup, author and scientist Anne Freier takes us on a journey of how our relationships affect us psychologically and biologically. Drawing on years of research and conversations with experts across various scientific disciplines, she provides a compact overview of why and how we love and grieve the loss of romance. 

From the evolution of love to the neuroscience of heartbreak, Freier delivers a scientific exploration of one of humanity’s greatest emotions. Guiding us through the scientifically tested strategies to get over heartbreak, we can free ourselves from the tunnel vision our sorrows can trap us in. In doing so, Science of Breakup offers a more pragmatic approach to heal and and beautifully demonstrates that our brains are powerful tools to get us through these darker times. 



I like to believe that romantic love endures, but much like other concepts, it undergoes constant re-shaping in line with new realities driven by evolving societal norms and cultural adaptations. Perhaps there’ll come a day when the idea of love shifts so far to the self that we’ll be aroused by the person in the mirror. (Spoiler alert: some of us already are.) But until that day, we continue to fall in love, cohabit, get married, and have children. Much like we continue to fall out of love, divorce, and break each other’s hearts. 

Was passiert mit unserem Körper, wenn wir uns trennen?
Die Autorin und Wissenschaftlerin Anne Freier hat sich diese Frage gestellt – nachdem ihr langjähriger Freund sie plötzlich verlassen hat. Akribisch zeichnet sie die neurologischen und psychologischen Folgen einer Trennung nach und konstatiert: die wirksamste Medizin gegen Herzschmerz steckt in uns selbst; nämlich der transformativen Kraft unseres Gehirns.
