This project attempts to answer the question, "How does the Other become the Beloved?" It conducts a hermeneutical phenomenology of love in order to describe the process of radical individuation that converts the Other into the Beloved. Drawing on Jean-Luc Marion's phenomenology of givenness and saturation it argues that the Other becomes the Beloved through the activity of the amorous imagination. The amorous imagination is both a hermeneutical site of reception and a creative-responsive faculty that engages in an "endless hermeneutic" that individuates the Other-as-Beloved.
