What *is* love? Philosophy 069  

The syllabus handed to her reads:

Topic: What is love, and why do we keep on falling for it?

The first assignment is a reading of this classic tune, along with a short essay on the thought of what one view of "love" is. That song is one of those classics that were used to define the paramenters of love. Does it resonate with you? Were you raised with those sorts of values?

Who Wrote the Book of Love

Oh, I wonder, wonder who
But who knew who
Who wrote the book of love?
Tell me, tell me, tell me
Who wrote the book of love?
Well, I've got to know the answer
Is it someone from above?
Oh, I wonder, wonder who
But who knew who
Who wrote the book of love?

Baby, baby, baby
I love you, yes I do
And it says so in this book of love
That I'm the one that's true
Oh, I wonder, wonder who
But who knew who
Who wrote the book of love?

Chapter one says you love her
You love her with all your heart
Chapter two says you'll never
You never, never... never gonna part
Chapter tree, remember
The meaning of romance
In chapter four you break up
Oh, won't you give me just one more chance?

Oh, I wonder, wonder who
But who knew who
Who wrote the book of love?

I wonder who
Who wrote the book of love?


Homework on the first day?? *sigh*

My only problem with this whole thing...

Gods that's a horrible song... makes me cringe just hearing the tune in my head... musically it's a thing of pure evil.

That's besides the point though... *smiles*

The lyrics at any rate, make a few points. Nothing exactly concrete though, and nothing quite related to the "essay" you asked us to write. I don't really see anything defining... but it does "resonate" as you say.

The problem with defining an emotion, is that it's every bit as individual as the people involved. My defination might give you some insights into your own, or even other people's, but it won't be the same as anyone's.

So I guess what I'm trying to find out first, is do you wish to know my defination, or are you looking for insights into your own?
