Phenomenology of Love : Philosophical Analysis of Conception of Love in the Light of Dietrich Von Hildebrand's Realistic Phenomenology
by Joanna Sosnicka




Overview -
Love received from another person changes our experience of the world. When it is mutual, it appears as a miracle; as a miracle unparalleled and not yet experienced by anyone. Spousal love is the end of the world, the end of the old world and the beginning of a totally new one. It is totally new because the life of a person in love is single and double at the same time. Saint Paul elevated spousal love above faith that moves mountains. Love is the essence of every human life, but spousal love is its aim. The mystic unification between two human beings has a special place not only in philosophy, but also in modern psychological (political) discussions. The understanding of love, its aim and form is a subject of dispute in the sphere of politics, religions, homosexual and heterosexual couples, modern philosophy and ordinary people who are (very often influenced by mass media) lost in various concepts and solutions. The main task for this work is to compare phenomenologist Dietrich von Hildebrand's "old and outdated conception" with all these modern propositions that exist today. Since "the highest does not stand without the lowest", we will probably find a place for von Hildebrand in our modern times.
