Abstract

This article devoted to the analysis of the concept of love in the religious philosophy of Nikolay Lossky. According to Lossky love is the absolute value in itself, integrating the world of values in a single axiological system, and on the other side, the main vital force unites of the social world. His doctrine of love-agape can be reconstructed from the following philosophical works: Absolute Good (1944), Value and Existence (1931), Freedom of will (1927), God and suffering (1941), History of Russian philosophy (1951). The authors draw the conclusion that Lossky's metaphysics of love describes in detail the ideal of goodness and love as the absolute positive values. Therefore, this kind of love is unattainable in the lives of people in the existing social world.
