Abstract [en]

In this article I attempt to reconcile two seemingly conflictingtheorizations of love, the one elaborated by Roy Bhaskar as part of hisphilosophy of metaReality and Anna G. Jónasdóttir’s historical materialist-radical feminist theory of ‘love power’. While Bhaskar emphasizes theessentially non-dual character of love, envisioning it as a ‘no-lose situation’,Jónasdóttir stresses the antagonistic features structuring love relationsby conceptualizing love as a productive power of which men tend toexploit women. Rather than seeing these accounts as mutually exclusiveI show that they can be reconciled by aid of the general ontology elaboratedby Bhaskar in his philosophy of metaReality.
