Overcoming a Euthyphro problem in personal love: Imagination and personal identity

Philosophical Psychology 24 (6):825 - 844 (2011)
Abstract
In this paper I address a Euthyphro problem associated with personal love. Do we love someone because we have reasons for loving that person or do we have reasons for loving that person because we love her? I argue that a relational view of identity will help us move some distance towards resolving this dilemma. But the relational view itself needs to be further supplemented by examining the role that imagination plays both in personal identity and in our experience of love
