On Love by Stendhal

The first part of On Love is an analysis of love.

Stendhal lists four kinds of love: physical love, purely sexual in scope; love as a social game, removed from passion; vanity love, a type necessary for high social standing; and passion, the finest form of love, which the author idealized and to which he devotes most of his attention.

Stendhal also emphasisez seven progressive stages of love, from admiration to “crystallization,” or the process by which the lover attributes all types of perfection to the beloved.
