Poets, theologians, romantics, scientists, and revolutionaries alike have explored the many facets of love. Judging by the wide use of the word alovea and the high praise it typically receives, we might think that philosophers have thoroughly analyzed love. But this is not the case. This book takes a step toward rectifying the neglect of a philosophical analysis of love. It brings together fifteen philosophical perspectives that explore some of loveas most important facets. Most of the essays have theistic or religious concerns in mind.But on my view there is a powerful argument that can be brought against the ability to love, which can be formulated ... In this essay, I will argue against the position defined in (2), namely that we do not have access to anothera#39;s mental states.
