In this article, the writer presents an argument that love does exist. The writer accomplishes this task by first providing an overview of some of the major theories and research findings regarding the existence of love. Then, different types of love are briefly described, with major emphasis on romantic love. The writer demonstrates the existence of this type of love by showing that it is exists independently from other types of love, and by briefly addressing its history. The essay concludes with an assessment of the difficulty of analyzing and precisely defining the phenomenon of love.
From the Paper:"The fact that it is possible to pinpoint the origins of romantic love further supports the argument that love does exist. Analysis of the origins of romantic love clearly shows that this is a real phenomenon that exists in certain situations (such as the modern times) and does not exist in other situations (such as pre-modern times).
Finally, the issue of the difficulty of defining and analyzing love needs to be addressed. While this paper clearly demonstrates that love does exist, it also acknowledges that precise description and analysis of this subject is a challenging task."
