Thesis: Though explanation of love in the modern world is limited by a single term, it is,
in fact, a much more complicated emotion that underlies a simple concept, one that is
based on chemicals released in the brain and the biological purpose of furthering the
Paragraph One: Describe
in the non-chemical sense, then go through chemicals
associated with sexual, or lustful “love,” and compare the two.
Paragraph Two: Describe agape, in a non-chemical way, then go into how this is not
necessarily a feeling but a result of an action, not necessarily what someone wants to do.
Go into maternal love for a child, in which a mother will do anything for a child, and
chemicals that bond the two at birth and through rearing.
Paragraph Three: Describe phileo love, which is love between friends, not based towards
reproduction or chemical bonding. Then describe chemicals released when jokes or
friendly acts are shared.
Paragraph Four: Describe storge love, or love between husband and wife, not sexually.
Go into chemicals released during intimacy again, and tie into basic, biological purpose,
which is to reproduce.
-Basically, there are many sides and parts to love, but does this just stem off a
monogamous approach to fitness, or furthering the human species.
