In Love's Vision, Troy Jollimore offers a new way of understanding love that accommodates both of these facts, arguing that love is guided by reason even as it resists and sometimes eludes rationality. At the same time, he reconsiders love's moral status, acknowledging its moral dangers while arguing that it is, at heart, a moral phenomenon-an emotion that demands empathy and calls us away from excessive self-concern. Love is revealed as neither wholly moral nor deeply immoral, neither purely rational nor profoundly irrational. Rather, as Diotima says in Plato's Symposium, love is "something in between.

His second book, Love's Vision, appeared in 2011. Jollimore completely probes the dynamics of giving a demonstration on how the robot would demonstrate love to a person and try to authenticate love like a human being. His book Love's Vision can be identified as a way to look at the restrictions on loving someone and how modernized it is seen within romantic relationships. However, Jollimore reveals the only way to validate this type of behavior is by completing the Turing Test.

Details (if other): Cancel. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

McTaggart takes love seriously. In addition, he thinks that love reveals something about the structure of the universe, and that in absolute reality, we could all love each other.

Love often seems uncontrollable and irrational, but we just as frequently appear to have reasons for loving the people we do. In Love's Vision, Troy Jollimore offers a new way of understanding love that accommodates both of these facts, arguing that love is guided by reason even as it resists and sometimes eludes rationality. At the same time, he reconsiders love's moral status, acknowledging its moral dangers while arguing that it is, at heart, a moral phenomenon--an emotion that demands empathy and calls us away from excessive self-concern. Love is revealed as neither wholly moral nor deeply immoral, neither purely rational nor profoundly irrational. Rather, as Diotima says in Plato's Symposium, love is "something in between."

Jollimore makes his case by proposing a "vision" view of love, according to which loving is a way of seeing that involves bestowing charitable attention on a loved one. This view recognizes the truth in the cliché "love is blind," but holds that love's blindness does not undermine the idea that love is guided by reason. Reasons play an important role in love even if they rest on facts that are not themselves rationally justifiable.

Filled with illuminating examples from literature, Love's Vision is an original examination of a subject of vital philosophical and human concern.

Comments to eBook Love's Vision

I used this book last Spring in my *Love and Friendship: An Introduction* course at the University of Notre Dame. It assuredly is one of the finest contributions to the philosophical literature on personal (esp. romantic) love. It was a great success as a primary text for the seminar. Prof. Jollimore combines an esteemed poet's sensibilities with a first class philosopher's capabilities. One of the monograph's greatest strengths is its examination of the phenomena with a willingness to take things as it finds them, rather than engaging in some sort of Procrustean restructuring for the sake of saying something distinctive at the expense of saying something subtle, thoughtful and most importantly true. Recommended without hesitation.

Go figure--a work of philosophy that is actually moving! For me, this book is up there with Harry Frankfurt's The Reasons of Love. Troy Jolimore has some really great things to say about why it makes sense to love the person we do (even if we can't fully articulate it, and maybe shouldn't try), why that makes love reasonable without being coldly rational, and why we shouldn't worry too much about it warping our sense of priorities. Plus, he writes with real feeling; although he's making careful logical arguments, you can tell they are based on life experience, and you can't help seeing your own relationships in a new light. Maybe it helps that he's a poet!
