Resumen

FERMANDOIS M., Eduardo. Harry Frankfurt, love and the good life. Veritas [online]. 2021, n.50, pp.79-99. ISSN 0718-9273.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-92732021000300079.

This essay explores the impact of Harry Frankfurt’s reflections on the importance we attach to certain things in general, as well as on love as a marked way in which something or someone can be important to us, to the fundamental question of the good life. I begin by examining the reasons why, according to the author, it is impossible to offer a non-circular answer to this question, reasons that make necessary an indirect way of approaching it. Starting from the Frankfurtian notion of importance, I then propose a critique of the so-called theory of desire, the most influential approach in current discussions about well-being or the good life. Finally, and after referring to the need, pointed out by Susan Wolf, to take into account the objective value of what matters to us, I present two considerations through which I try, with and against Frankfurt, to highlight what seems most valuable to me of his ideas about love.

Palabras clave : good life; good life theories; importance; caring; love; Frankfurt; Wittgenstein.
