Let us now state who are the persons that men love1 or hate, and why, after we have defined love and loving.

1 φιλεῖν may be translated “to love” or “to like”; φιλία by “love,” “liking,” or “friendship”; for φίλος “friend” alone is suitable. For the two meanings cp. the use of aimer in French, and lieben in German.
