I think it makes people forget themselves and that kind of deep attachment is detrimental to the individual, but perhaps that's just the Buddhist in me speaking. One should be able to feel whole and happy by oneself before thinking about being with someone else. I kind of think that's why so many relationships fail; how can a healthy relationship with someone else exist when you're already a mess by yourself?
The Metaphysics of the Love of the Sexes
I don't know if any of that made sense or was even relevant Maybe I should have actually learned a bit about this Schopenhauer guy before commenting. Post a Comment.
Monday, March 2, Schopenhauer and Love. Looking at The Metaphysics of Love today, it is easy to cast it aside as out-of-date ruminations from a bygone era.
An encyclopedia of philosophy articles written by professional philosophers.
Schopenhauer claims the will to live and the will of the species are linked to biological instincts that instill in us a compulsion to mate. Love is reduced to the biological tendency to find a mate. A man who is Schopenhauer's subject and a woman will come together to reform the Platonic Ideal of the human species. Passionate love is more or less humans flouting their individual selves and taking on the heroic role of species-first reproduction.
A man will run climb the tallest mountain, dodge bullets and endure cultural ostracism to fulfill his passionate desire to meld with the object of his desire and compulsion. In popular literature of the times, such a man was honorable in his sacrifices for obtaining this love.
Honor is a value that exists for the greater good of the species; the child that results from the strenuous courtship is the ultimate goal. The individual in this case is too weak a vessel to bear the infinite longing of the will of the species concentrated upon a definite object. Posted by Maximus Meyer at PM. No comments:.
