Example text

She would still be valued only as the bearer and source of an itemizable set of complex characteristics, and the remainder of her instantiations would not be counted in my love for her. Since I should love only some aspects of her, it would not be true to say that I loved the entire woman: If those aspects changed so would my love for her. Yet against this, people sometimes continue to love a person who, as a result of illness or accident, is completely changed in important respects. Do they love the person only because of a past relationship?

The test of genuine love in such cases is simply that the love continues after all possible use of the object merely as a means to self-love ceases. Something of this interest in continued care can be seen in those advertisements that offer objects for sale 'only to a good home where they will be cared for properly'. Thus private ownership of an object does not exclude loving it for its own sake. In fact, love of an object is a common reason for later wishing to own it and thus ensuring its presence.

Unrequited love is often but not invariably painful. There are people who can only feel affection for another person if the affection is not returned. They are able to admire, be concerned for, and take care of other people, but are unable to accept such care in return. They must be actors and not patients. We may classify such people as neurotic and their affection as a symptom of the neurosis. But the somewhat unsatisfactory role that the affection plays in their lives does not show that their affection is not genuine.
