About the book
According to Paul Verhaeghe, intimacy is based first of all on a relationship with yourself and only then on relationships with others. Our relationship with our bodies lays the foundation not only for intimacy but for our mental and physical health. Nowadays, unfortunately, that relationship is characterized by embarrassment, a result of the conviction that we are never beautiful or healthy enough. In Intimacy Verhaeghe shows that our era is urgently in need of a new form of self-care, in which we coincide more closely with ourselves. He rejects the classic divide between body and mind, helping us to look at ourselves and the world in a new way.
