Hearts Hunting and Gathering – The History of Love: Prehistory
December 27, 2021 at 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm EST
Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected
Join Interintellect founder Anna Gát as she returns to the topic of last year’s popular miniseries, A History of Love. In this first episode, we will talk about our evolutionary origins and our cultural development in tribes, what our prehistoric background might mean for our contemporary relationships, and what cave-time dating even looked like.
Welcome to the 2022 edition of our A History of Love series! We will start by going back in time, to the “dawn of man (and woman)”, to explore how we lived before settling down in big communities: our hunter-gatherer ancestors and the tribes inhabiting an extending network of caves and simple settlements around the world.

How did romantic love come to exist in the first place? What makes it uniquely human…? Did it arise because of the high calorie cost, and other dangers, of human pregnancy? Was it our talent at language and maybe even music? Did humans’ tendency to self-organise around religions play a role? And if romantic love had good reasons to develop at the start of our humanity, is it still necessary and viable to practice it in today’s world?
We hope you can join this important discussion.
