First of all, what is this thing we call love? from Elena Dragan's blog

There are many definitions of love, and the definition of love varies for each individual. Writers, psychologists, philosophers, artists, in short, everyone has an opinion about love.

 

For example, in my opinion, love is both the most beautiful feeling in the world and also one of the most painful. It may be very good for a person, but it is ready to kill you at any moment. I think love is a feeling that uses our weaknesses and for which we can do anything. We lose respect for ourselves and do whatever we say we won't do.

 

In fact, love is a state of madness that we are not aware of. Love is also a state of uncertainty. There is never certainty, but there is always a possibility. That's why we try harder to experience and maintain that love with the feeling of unknown. Even bad situations contain hope. Love also means being content with little and showing extreme self-sacrifice. Love is like a narcissistic state. In fact, it is a situation of falling in love not with the person we love, but with the "you" in that person's eyes and loving those feelings.

 Definition of Love According to Philosophy;
Over; It has definitions that include deep emotions such as inner experience, search for happiness, sense of devotion, and sacrifice. Everything can be described as love. Love involves passion. It is also humanized sexuality. Of course, the concept of love varies according to thinkers and movements in philosophy, but a few examples can be given:

 

According to Plato, love is the search for beauty and the desire for immortality. It contains passions. A person in love searches for beauty and happiness. He searches for the other soul needed to complete his soul. It defines love as something deep. “Love is a serious mental illness,” he says.

 

Love according to Socrates: First of all, Socrates' ideas about love are included in Plato's work "Symposium". According to Socrates, love is an emotion based on the search for wisdom, finding the ideal love, the search for beauty, and a spiritual connection. By following these, one finds true love. Socrates defines love as Eros. He says that love penetrates deep into the soul and is associated with Eros, an inner divine force. In short, according to Socrates, love; It is quest, learning, spiritual development and spiritual connection.

 

Love According to Psychology;
When we look at the literature, we see the existence of love for individuals, the definition of love, what love makes people feel, the existence of romantic feelings and their reflection on behavior, psychological well-being and life satisfaction. It can be said that love is a strong emotion by looking at the extent to which it is included in life and the well-being, life satisfaction and perspective of individuals.

 

According to Freud: Freud defines love as "the reconstruction of the phase of being one before the void created by separation from the mother." Freud emphasizes that love is related to sexual impulses and that childhood experiences affect the partner selection process. He says it is a situation where the libido is activated. He also adds that love can lead to some negative consequences.

 

According to Jung: Jung says that love is an emotion that aims at self-realization. According to Jung, love involves the integration of both the feminine and masculine characteristics of the individual, that is, spiritual integration. This means inner balance and harmony. Love also contributes to the personal development of individuals. According to Jung, love goes beyond sexuality. It involves a deep spiritual connection. He also says that love covers both the conscious and unconscious aspects of individuals and enables people to confront their fears and desires.

 

Love According to Science;
Scientists attribute love to chemical functions occurring in the frontal lobe and thalamus. From a scientific perspective, there are hormones and chemicals that cause us to fall in love. These are nerve growth factor, testosterone , dopamine, estrogen , serotonin, oxytocin and norepinephrine (noradrenaline), vasopressin.

 

Love According to Literary Writers;
Literary writers define love as being more directed towards people and emotions.

 

William Shakespeare: According to Shakespeare, love oscillates between sweet and bitter feelings. In his works, he dealt with passionate love as well as the dangers of love, betrayal and separation.

 

 

Fyodor Dostoyevsky: Dostoyevsky thinks that true love can create change in individuals and bring them into spiritual and moral renewal. In addition, he also accepts that love involves great pain. Her characters often deal with internal conflicts, unrequited love, and the complexities of human relationships. It depicts love as an emotion that both exalts and makes people suffer.

 

He briefly says that love reflects the person himself and is intertwined with spirituality. At the same time, he thinks that love is a feeling that is both painful and exalting, and that love can change people. “Loving is not about looking for love in someone beautiful. It is finding yourself in that person in an unexpected moment of a time you do not know.” says.
