    In response to the question, "What is Love," I examined selected concepts of love in the Western tradition with the purpose of promoting a better understanding of love. While my primary source was the history of ideas, my approach was pluralistic in the sense that I referred to arguments and insights of a number of disciplines, among them philosophy, religion and science. The findings indicate that Western concepts of love present a wide spectrum of ideas which are supported by values (...)

  5. Can We Love as God Loves?Pamela Sue Anderson - unknown
    I locate the starting point for this essay on the common ground between the traditionally conceived attribute of divine love and the moral theory known as divine command ethics. The latter assumes that something is good because God commands it; with the former, the gift of divine love requires love in return. In this light, God’s command to love is recognized as goodness itself by those ‘he’ loves. In other words, those persons loved by God are morally motivated to love. (...)

  6. Same-Sex Marriage, 'Homosexual Desire,' and the Capacity to Love.Christopher Arroyo - 2011 - International Journal of Applied Philosophy 25 (2):171-186.
    The issue of same-sex marriage continues to be controversial in the United States. Opponents of same-sex marriage offer a variety of objections in defense of their position. One such objection (which I identify as the Inability to Love objection, or ILO) is that legalizing same-sex marriage would promote a counterfeit good (homosexual marriage) as a genuine good (heterosexual marriage), since homosexuals are incapable of genuine, full erotic love. Proponents of ILO argue that homosexuals are incapable of genuine erotic love because (...)

  7. Hating the One You Love.Aaron Ben-Ze’ev - 2008 - Philosophia 36 (3):277-283.
    Many testimonies, as well as fictional works, describe situations in which people find themselves hating the person that they love. This might initially appear to be contradiction, as how can one love and hate the same person at the same time? A discussion of this problem requires making a distinction between logical consistency and psychologically compatibility. Hating the one you love may be a consistent experience, but it raises difficulties concerning its psychological compatibility.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. 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 (...)

  13. 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) (...)

    Can we love and envy the same person at the same time? There is an overwhelming, cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary, consensus that love and envy are deeply incompatible. In this paper, I challenge this consensus, and focus in particular on the normative thesis that true love should be void of envy proper. I first propose an indirect argument. Because love and envy thrive in the same psychological conditions, it is not unlikely to feel envy toward the beloved. If we want ideals (...)

    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, (...)

  20. 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 (...)

    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.

  26. Early Relationships, Pathologies of Attachment, and the Capacity to Love.Monique Wonderly - forthcoming - In Adrienne Martin (ed.), Routledge Handbook of Love in Philosophy. New York, USA: Routledge.
    Psychologists often characterize the infant’s attachment to her primary caregiver as love. Philosophical accounts of love, however, tend to speak against this possibility. Love is typically thought to require sophisticated cognitive capacities that infants do not possess. Nevertheless, there are important similarities between the infant-primary caregiver bond and mature love, and the former is commonly thought to play an important role in one’s capacity for the latter. In this work, I examine the relationship between the infant-primary caregiver bond and love. (...)
