Title: Love and the Individual

Publisher: LAP Lambert Academic Publishing

Binding: Paperback

Book Condition: New

Book Type: Paperback

Description:

Paperback. 100 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.9in. x 0.2in.What is it that we really love when we love an individual person, and to what extent are we egoistical in the search for happy love Moreover, whatwhom should we love, and for what reason In this book I approach the subject Love and the Individual by analyzing Gregory Vlastos two main charges against Platos theory of love: Firstly, that Platos theory fails to give a satisfying account of love directed from one individual towards another individual; and secondly, that it is essentially egoistical. Throughout the thesis I underscore the points considered vulnerable to criticism, and highlight the phenomena subjected to insufficient treatment. As I assess Vlastos charges, three Platonic dialogues will be discussed in depth: the Symposium, the Lysis and the Phaedrus. With a few passages from other dialogues, I hope to complete the picture.

About this title:

Synopsis: What is it that we really love when we love an individual person, and to what extent are we egoistical in the search for happy love? Moreover, what/whom should we love, and for what reason? In this book I approach the subject "Love and the Individual" by analyzing Gregory Vlastos' two main charges against Plato's theory of love: Firstly, that Plato's theory fails to give a satisfying account of love directed from one individual towards another individual; and secondly, that it is essentially egoistical. Throughout the thesis I underscore the points considered vulnerable to criticism, and highlight the phenomena subjected to insufficient treatment. As I assess Vlastos' charges, three Platonic dialogues will be discussed in depth: the Symposium, the Lysis and the Phaedrus. With a few passages from other dialogues, I hope to complete the picture.
