Summary/Abstract: The aim of the article is to reflect on the phenomenon of love. The precondition for establishing a relationship with a second person is on the ontological level a substantial-relational understanding of the person. Dialogic authenticity, existential communication and dialogue are possible on the basis of love. We distinguish an authentic love which is understood as agape from non-authentic love. The highest form of love has manifested itself in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Love is the highest form of meaning in the life of man.
