The Anthropological Error Is Playing with the Fire of Love

Keywords: anthropological error, conjugal love, metaphysics of love, truth, ideology


The article analyzes the problem of an anthropological error through the prism of conjugal love. The author shows how the anthropological error violates the truth about man created male and female, and their mutual being a gift requiring a response. Ultimately, the anthropological error destroys in man two paradigms of love: it destroys the ontological difference that unites man with the Creator, and the sexual difference that binds man and woman into “one body.” By destroying the history of love, it consequently gives rise to ideologies which, in their functions as metaphysics, do not know the gift, and which transform the history of love itself into a history of satisfying one need or another, sometimes contrary to the dignity of the person.
