Thinking Through Loneliness, by Diane Enns
Thinking Through Loneliness lends its topic a nuance lacking in many other recent discussions. Enns examines what loneliness is and is not, explores its social causes, and cites what we generally need in order to avoid it. While she adds warmth to her study with accounts of her own experience, such subjectivity is just one of many points of view in her admirably even-handed consideration. Applying a keen and empathetic eye, Enns delivers a thorough survey of her subject's complexities and paradoxes.
