Love and Prosociality  [PDF]
Lumír Ries
Pedagogicka Orientace , 2011,
Abstract: The paper deals with pedagogic love in relation to prosociality in education.The word love keeps disappearing from pedagogic texts that are one-sidedly orientedtowards scientism. However, significant pedagogues of both the past and the presenttimes consider love to be the basis of any kind of education. While prosociality primarilyaffects the behavioural facet of human relations, love is aimed at the innermost level.It is necessary to look for the great truths about the depth of the anthropologicalphenomenon called love in philosophy. Philosophical beliefs concerning the role oflove in human life, in man’s individual and social existence, opinions of thinkers frromthe ancient times until today, provide pedagogy with the starting point leading towardsunderstanding the role of love in the sphere of education.

Abstract: The biology; especially the neurobiological features of the “love” phenomenon has recently started to attract attention. Love relations and attachment, which is closely related with them, are known to be important in health and disease. Love and love relations are found to be complex neurobiological phenomena based on activation of the limbic system of the brain. Those processes involve oxytocin, vasopressin, dopamine and serotonergic functions. Additionally, endorphine and endogenous opiate systems as well as nitrous oxide play role in those processes. The stages of love and love relations may demonstrate different neurochemical and neurophysiological features and may partially overlap with m aternal, romantic and sexual love and attachments. The aim of this article is to evaluate the common neurobiological pathways underlying the “love” phenomenon as well as their importance in medicine and health.
Love Is Not an Emotion  [PDF]
Enrique Burunat
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2016.714173
Abstract: Romantic love—referred to as love—, is a physiological drive, but society has come to understand it as an emotion. Nevertheless, many researchers, mainly psychologists, have established its impulsive and motivational characteristics, which are even similar to those of addictive drug abuse. However, many professionals in the field of psychology and psychiatry still consider love to be a complex emotion or feeling. This article describes some of the causes and consequences of the extensive confusion between love and emotion. Some reasons to consider love as a physiological motivation, like hunger, thirst, sleep and sexuality are also summarized. A Love Withdrawal Syndrome is proposed. It concludes by highlighting the urgency to eliminate love from the catalogue of emotions in psychology, as an item or cluster in psychological tests, and also as an emotional mental function, by contributing to its dramatic consequences, mainly divorces, suicides and femicides.

Psicanálise e Barroco em Revista , 2009,
Abstract: This article approaches the love in its differents aspects, regarding the experience pertinent to the encounter between lover and loved. To talk about love we weave a writing and convokethe women. But, we verify it as an impossible task. For that reason, making use of fragments of letters, poetries, declarations and about everything that indicates a trace to love. In the slope of the writing, remitting us at the foundation moment of the clinic, by means the meeting of a man, Sigmund Freud and some women that got a name on annals of psychoanalytic knowing. In this context be detached the transfer-love, presupposed to handle on experience of clinical analysis. This singularity made the psychoanalysis become aknowing about the particular by itself and a clinic destined to neurotic suffering.

Francis Etim
International Journal of Asian Social Science , 2013,
Abstract: Love in its entire ramification is an encompassing human phenomenon that is so challenging that it naturally evokes interest in academics, philosophers, psychologists, religious enthusiast, etc. It appears however that its elusive nature has continued to fascinate man such that there seems to be no hard and fast rules about it. In any case, this paper tries to answer the questions as to whether love does exist in actually or is just a mere concept: Is love a preserved human activity which other sentient beings do not participate or can it be extended to animate beings as well.
Love founded in God: The fruits of love in Kierkegaard’s ‘Works of love’  [cached]

Abstract: This article discussed the use of the Bible in ‘Love’s hidden life and its recognizability by its fruits’, which is the first reflection of S ren Kierkegaard’s book, Works of love. Firstly, this article discussed Kierkegaard’s lack of clarity about the fruits of love, even though he stresses their divine origin. Secondly, it reflected on his argument that, even though deeds are more important than words, words remain necessary because of the need to express love to others. In a following section he points out that neither specific words nor particular works of love can demonstrate that love exists. One needs to distinguish between works of love and the attitude with which works are done. Thirdly, it pointed out how Kierkegaard argues that the inability to demonstrate love unconditionally does not negate that love is to be known by its fruits. It is rather a personal incitement to love for the sake of love itself. Noting that there is no direct relationship between the fruits of love and the actual effects our love has on others, he points to the fact that the result of love is in the hands of God. He then argues that though fruits of love may be invisible, they become apparent in the strength of our love. The only responsibility we have is to follow love as the divine movement of our heart. In the final part of his reflection, Kierkegaard notes that there is no other way to enter into the reality of love than to believe in it. This implies that one should be careful of making demands on someone in a loving relationship. What is needed is to become rooted in love as the divine source of the heart so that one will understand that this unseen reality is the foundation of existence in which one is known by the Other, whose essence is love.

Love as Attunement  [PDF]
Acylene Maria Cabral Ferreira
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2018.82008
Abstract: We aim to show, using Being and Time and Zollikon Seminars, that solicitude (Fürsorge) as the disclosedness of being-with is the condition of possibility for the existential-ontological constitution of the attunement of love. Centered on the text On the Essence of Truth, our purpose is to emphasize that freedom is also an attunement. Our hypothesis is that the copertinence of love (the fundamental disclosedness to the other) and of freedom (the letting-be of the other) consists in a modification of the existential of disposedness (Befindlichkeit) and expresses the unity and ontological circularity of being-in-the-world.
