Hilarious relationship advice from history's greatest minds.

What would Kant's sexts look like? How would Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir break up? What would Confucius think of Tinder?

Comedy writer Julia Edelman's New Yorker article 'Excerpts from Philosophers Breakup Letters' was a viral hit in 2015. From that same font of wisdom comes a hilarious spoof relationship guide with a philosophical edge.

Including essential information in chapters like 'Getting (Meta)physical' and '5 Ways To Know Your Man is Writing a Manifesto' - which gives the advice you need to avoid losing a relationship to revolution - Love Voltaire Us Apart is funny, smart, refreshingly original, and brought to life with charming illustrations from Hallie Bateman.
