  1. Romantic Love and Loving Commitment: Articulating a Modern Ideal.Neil Delaney - 1996 - American Philosophical Quarterly 33 (4):339 - 356.
    This essay presents an ideal for modern Western romantic love.The basic ideas are the following: people want to form a distinctive sort of plural subject with another, what Nozick has called a "We", they want to be loved for properties of certain kinds, and they want this love to establish and sustain a special sort of commitment to them over time.

  3. The Impossibility of Unconditional Love.Steven D. Hales - 1995 - Public Affairs Quarterly 9 (4):317-320.
    There are two main ways to understand unconditional love. I argue that one is impossible (i.e., no one could love that way) and the other is probably irrational. This has important consequences in a variety of domains. Social policies have been derided on the grounds that they undermine unconditional love, and it has been called "possibly the most valuable aspect of the Christian tradition". The works of Robert Nozick, Elizabeth Anderson, and Richard Taylor on this topic are examined and criticized.

  5. Unlivable Loves: Hélisenne, Nietzsche, and the Metaphysics of Love.Eloy LaBrada - 2016 - JNT: Journal of Narrative Theory 46 (1).
    In this paper, I motivate a philosophical analysis of the early modern thinker Hélisenne de Crenne, unpacking the metaphysical implications of de Crenne’s puzzling eliminativist theory of unlivable love. De Crenne suggests that love cannot be experienced because there is no such thing—love is not realized in mental states or physical actions because strictly speaking love does not exist. We misjudge behaviors and beliefs to incarnate love but, upon closer inspection, we come to find that love has only been fictively (...)

  6. Shall I Love You as My Brother?Tanya Loughead - 2008 - Proceedings of the American Catholic Philosophical Association 82:189-201.
    This essay begins with a perceived problem found in Maurice Blanchot’s work, namely that, while on the one hand, love as we find it in friendship is based upon the separation of two people, a distance which can never be erased; on the other hand, Blanchot makes a comment in a letter to the effect that ‘the Jews are our brothers,’ indicating a love based upon the familial bond, or closeness. This would seem (to some readers, such as Jacques Derrida) (...)

    Gehört die Fähigkeit, uns zu verlieben, zu unserem stammesgeschichtlichen Erbe? Ist das ein Trick der Natur, der Menschen dazu bewegt, Bindungen einzugehen? Ist Bindung Liebe? Ist Sexualität im Phänomenbereich der Liebe zu verorten? Ist Liebe überhaupt ein Gefühl oder besteht sie aus einem Netz von Gefühlen, Empfindungen und rationalen Einstellungen? Welche Rolle kommt dabei kulturell geprägten Überzeugungen und Vorstellungen zu? Und was wird daraus in der Kunst? Diesen und anderen Fragen gehen die Autorinnen und Autoren dieses Bandes aus philosophischer, biologischer, (...)

  11. Lgbtq…Z?Kathy Rudy - 2012 - Hypatia 27 (3):601-615.
    In this essay, I draw the discourses around bestiality/zoophilia into the realm of queer theory in order to point to a new form of animal advocacy, something that might be called, in shorthand, loving animals. My argument is quite simple: if all interdicts against bestiality depend on a firm notion of exactly what sex is (and they do), and if queer theory disrupts that firm foundation by arguing that sexuality is impossible to define beforehand and pervades many different kinds of (...)

  13. The Coherence of Love.Alan Soble - 2000 - Philosophy and Theology 12 (2):293-315.
    I examine three common beliefs about love: constancy, exclusivity, and the claim that love is a response to the properties of the beloved. Following a discussion of their relative consistency, I argue that neither the constancy nor the exclusivity of love are saved by the contrary belief, that love is not (entirely) a response to the properties of the beloved.
