from Lawrence, Pub Philosophy Group, Sunday meeting: Does (romantic) love exist or is it just fantasy?

Dear friends


This Sunday we are discussing Does (romantic) love exist or is it just
fantasy?

As you know we have discussed love many times in the `past. However,
whether it exists or not is a new theme on the subject.

I am inclined to think that romantic love does exist and we know if we
have it or not in the same way we know whether there is a giraffe in the
room or not. And if you don't know whether there is a giraffe in your
room or not then you probably don't know whether romantic love exists or
not.

Of course, if there is a giraffe in your room it does not care what you
think of it or how you feel about it. But if you are in love, it matters
a great deal what the other person thinks about you. Your romantic love
might exist but there is a good chance it only has the status of a fantasy.

Take care

Lawrence
