Summary/Abstract: The article deals with a range of concepts, striving to reveal their semantic unity. In this connection, a kind of dialectical perspective is used to review their relation of definition. The concepts in question are those of self-consciousness, morality and love. The author clarifies the nature of amorous consciousness – in the sense of identity of love, conditioned as infatuation, and adoration. As a result, a new analytical perspective on certain specific forms of love is established, including love of God, love of the ideal (homeland), maternal or parental love.
