The Coherence of Love

Philosophy and Theology 12 (2):293-315 (2000)
Abstract
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.
Keywords Love, Rationality, Constancy, Exclusivity, Gellner
