Love is defined as an intense feeling of deep affection for someone or something, but why does it mean so much more to us? Why does who we are and who we become depend on whom we love? Dr. Thomas Lewis and Dr. Emiliana Simon-Thomas will answer this and many other questions as they explore our human development, the nature of togetherness and the multifaceted bonds that connect us.
