Abstract: This thesis explores the nature of loving relationships and their influence as a source of reasons. First, I attempt to define love by discussing the central case of close friendship. Next, I address the relationship between this kind of love and reasons and conclude that love is a source of punctual reasons. Finally, I discuss how love as a source of reasons can interfere with other sources of reason, like morality.
