“Interpersonal relationships are changing and people need to know why this is happening,” says Dr. Lena K. Ericksen. In “Stranded on the Shores of Time” (published by Xlibris), she taps into her expertise as a doctor of developmental psychology to address the contrasts and the conflicts between humanity’s ancient evolved behavioral characteristics and the new behaviors that came with the rise of civilization.

“Why has love and being in love largely disappeared from contemporary life?” asks Dr. Ericksen. Her book examines the root causes of this change from pre-history (before ~10,000 BCE), to the historic period (~10,000 BCE – present) and continues with a forecast of how things are likely to develop far into the future. Far from a dry academic treatise, “Stranded on the Shores of Time” relates her points through a series of short stories meant to be understood by average individuals struggling to make sense of their relationships.

“People want to understand why loneliness and infidelity is so common today,” says Dr. Ericksen. She has noted how the modern world is changing everything that makes us human and her book endeavors to answer why. It is a book for people who are feeling lost in today’s world, a guide and a bulwark against the aura of frightening immensity or trite superficiality that modern civilization has made of human relations.
